Powerboat Undergoing Repairs

Blue Whisper is currently being cleaned and fixed in preparation for next year's day trips, more info on this nearer the time. We are also working to secure the funds to repair the powerboat trailer after the brakes became seized. They were fixed in order to get Blue Whisper out the water but will still need replacing, for a more permanent fix! Currently, we are purchasing more equipment, such as lifejackets, coats, and waterproof trousers, also ready for next year.

Thanks,
Ethan Keys

Powerboat Outings are finished now but we need help with maintenance

The outings for this summer and autumn are now over and plans are being made to repair things, maintain the engines for winter and put the boat to bed. However, we have significant problems with the trailer. It needs repairs and we need help to do this, particularly over the first three weeks of October. Please ask John for further details

Jason and Ethan are now qualified powerboat level two drivers ! Well done guys.

If you would like to learn how to drive the RIB and undertake a weekend course at Bradwell or Tollesbury, please talk to John. The costs will be covered in return for you volunteering on the boat for a few sessions, next spring, summer and autumn, by agreement and arrangement.
