In what can only be described as, ‘extreme conditions’, an inaugural Speed Weekend organised by the Classic Offshore Powerboat Club, (COPC) under the sanction of UKOPRA was held outside of Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight at the end of September.
Record attempts were made by offshore racing boats that have competed in this season’s UKOPRA championships, and with very strong winds, it was amazing that the organisers could put together some runs for the boats!
Dorian pushed his Yanmar powered Fountain through the rough to establish an Offshore 2 record at 76.34987 mph.
Amazing, considering the conditions.
