Powerboats head for Lowestoft

Recommended Posts

Guest

The prestigious Round Britain Powerboat Race will be heading for Lowestoft for the first time on Sunday afternoon.

Forty boats of all shapes and sizes are expected to descend on the port in the penultimate stop of the race that covers the coastline of Britain in 10 action packed days.

The boats are divided into eight divisions based on horsepower and have already made the journey from Portsmouth up to Oban in Scotland.

Taking part is the Lowestoft based Ocean pirate in the classic division, nearly 40 years after her first attempt in 1969. Unfortunately the crew had some trouble and broke down but will be rejoining the fleet in Inverness ready to greet the home crowd on Sunday.
