Round Britain Power Boat Race
Deferred until 19th and 28th June, 2014

Round Britain 2012 Marathon, RB12, Deferred.

Round Britain Ltd announces that RB12, the Round Britain Land, Sea and Air marathon will now take place between 19th and 28th June, 2014. The event will be known as RB14. RB12 was due to start on 21 June 2012.

The existing economic conditions have meant that there is not a sufficiently strong field to provide adequate competition for all in RB12. The move to 2014 will allow for improving conditions and attract a wider and stronger field in all elements. We are sad for those competitors who have entered RB12 and who are raring to go. We will, of course, honour their places in RB14. Our sponsors have indicated that they are prepared to continue to support us and very much hope to be involved in a related event this year.

Some competitors will want to participate and compete in other Marathon events this year. In Scandinavia, the Skagerrak Across event is being launched for the first time in 24 years. It will take place on the 6th July under UIM classifications and is a distance of 144NM racing from Norway to Denmark. For further information please contact Barrie Williams on b.williams5@btinternet.com. In addition the BPRC will be running the Cowes Torquay Cowes event on the August Bank Holiday weekend along with a second race being planned for the same weekend. For more information see www.cowes2012.co.uk The Royal Motor Yacht Club will be holding their Powerboat Weekend on the 26-27th May which will also have an interesting selection of gatherings and events.

Offshore powerboat racing is racing by large, specially designed ocean-going powerboats, typically point-to-point racing.

Probably one of the largest, most dangerous, and most powerful racing machines of all, the extreme expense of the boats and the fuel required to participate make it an expensive and elite sport.[citation needed]

Many different types and classes of boats can compete in individual races, on the same course, at the same time. Offshores have widely been known as a "Rich man's" sport, however, now even people with normal pleasure boats can compete in some newly formed classes (with minor safety modifications). This may include single or twin piston engine V-bottom boats, single or twin piston engine catamaran style boats, four piston engine boats, and turbine boats. Depending on the class, speeds varies from 65 mph (105 km/h) to 250 mph (400 km/h)
