Seagull & Anzani race around Brownsea island Poole

Post by Charles uk » Mon Jun 25, 2018 8:27 pm

This was pointed out to me by one of our members who found it on the Royal Motor yacht Club website, I know nothing about it at all, I don't even know if it's open to non members of the RYMC.

It might pay to find out if there is a speed limit in force during the summer!

That's a class A

I have a couple of petrol Anzani class B's that would break the speed limit before any cooling water would flow.

Not sure of the exact details, but I believe they were only permitted to run in the alcohol classes in the US.

I have access to a Yamato 80, do you think they would let me run that, might be a bit much for a 20 foot Bermudian.
