Last night saw a gathering of forward thinking, world caring, history making people. It was the night of the re-commissioning of the Dupree Cup, now being dedicated to the record breaking of the round the world powerboat attempt.
The Dupree Cup had been hidden for many years, as when World War 2 broke out, the cup along with many others was stuffed out of sight up a chimney. Thankfully it will now sit pride of place once again, that is when Alan Priddy and his history making Team Britannia break the Round the world record in a powerboat, fuelled by innovative clean fuel.
I personally would like to wish Alan and the team a very safe and extremely successful journey. Bring the record home to Pompey!
