Race-2 brings out the crowds.......

17th May 2015

The Stanley Gibbons Investment sponsored Guernsey Powerboat Association's Offshore Powerboat Championship is already attracting large crowds to see the action.

Encouraged by the bright evening there were hundreds of people lining the St Peter Port harbour wall to support Race-2 of the Championship. This was great to see as so much time (and money) is committed by the Association, helpers and of course the racers to bring Powerboat racing back to local waters.

The second race of the weekend was missing a few boats due to damage caused in Race-1 but there was still plenty of action to see at close quarters from the QE2 marina wall.

With more boats lined up for future races I fancy that Powerboating is now firmly re-established on the Guernsey scene :-)

I've added a few pics of Race-2 to a new picture gallery:
