This year the World Circumnavigation Powerboat record will be broken by a craft designed and built by amazing Portsmouth people, huge blue chip companies are on board to help this come to fruition, the same Portsmouth people are the ones that hosted the "FREE" Thundercat extravaganza of powerboats, Music, Stunt motorcycles, food, love Southsea market and much much more on the Castle field and seafront. If we thought that was spectacular then bringing home the record will be as big as the homecoming of the "Lively Lady" from its round the world achievement, which the anniversary is today.
This will again put our amazing City of Portsmouth firmly on the maritime map. With the help of the council, we should be able to make this world wide news, show how great we are at making things happen in our great city.
The powerboat is in fabrication and at the moment a skeleton of aluminium, the engines and jets are waiting to be put in, along with the 6 fuel tanks.
The hull is upside down at this present time and once flipped, will be kitted out and made race ready.
Am I a little excited, after standing inside of the skeleton 80' X 9' you bet ya.
Thanks to Alan Priddy and Stephan Mason also Team Britannia you are all amazing.
