Bad weather doesn’t daunt IPRC enthusiasm

John Moore on 29th July 2017

With the Jet Stream sitting below the British Isles, the whole country is suffering from unseasonable weather.

Holiday makers aren’t the only to suffer, the International Powerboat Racing Club (IPRC) ’s Falmouth to Scilly Isles UIM Marathon race this weekend has had to undergo an haircut.

Race officials have put together a shortened course of 76 NM which will encompass Falmouth to Eddystone Lighthouse, Plymouth and back.

The 4 competing boats, Silverline, Birretta Due, Halcyon Connect and HTS Perkins are moored at Port Penden, Falmouth until around 10am and can be seen from the Maritime Museum walkway.
