In a special dose of nostalgia, we take a trip down memory lane to 1984 and the 'Everest Double Glazing' Round Britain Offshore Powerboat Race.
The race, which had previously been held in 1969 and has only ever been held once since, in 2008, was a 10 stage tour around the British coastline. With huge costs involved, sponsorships were invited involving some of the big brands of the time. Double TWO were delighted to be involved.
Beginning in Portsmouth, 28 powerboats set off racing to Falmouth. Leg 2 saw a race further up the coast to Fishguard in Wales, then to Douglas on the Isle of Man, a race around the Isle of Man for leg 4 and then on to Oban in Scotland. Competitors then cut through the Caledonian Canal as part of a non-racing cruise before resuming the race from Inverness to Dundee. From there the race continued to Whitby, to Great Yarmouth, to Ramsgate and then finally back to Portsmouth. A total race distance of 1,650 miles.
