    We need a tech inspectors to start checking these B class motors.Running like D class motors no wonder they made a statement on the BPBA fourm that they have something for the D class boats. SMH!!!!

      It would be better if this class was made for
      All stock 150 hp outboards with no modifications.
      Anyway . The BPBA is just allowing anything now
      Just to make up the numbers.

    I always enjoy this event – was a lot of excitement to see the Craft jumping in and out of the semi rough water at high speeds.
    My Friends from upstate New York thourally enjoyed it , they don’t see powerboat Racing were they come so they come here to see it.
    We were near some visitors from Boston who have never seen power Boat Racing either. – the diference is my
    friends come here twice a year for the Bermuda Day Parade and the Annual Bermuda Round the Island Race.
    They love it.
    It’s time for the Round the Island Race to become a International event.-
    Congradulations to the Sellys who crossed the finsh line First.- to me and my friends, all the drivers are winners.

    Congrats to Don & Don Jr. =) SO proud of you guys. Been champions though!

  14. Spectators corner says:

    once again the D class got the raw end of the deal. BPBA need to come correct especialy when a purse is invovled. Please check the time laps between B and D class. Make it right and publish it. I understand that the radio between the pace boat and the starter was not working.
    WHEN WILL D187 CATCH A BREAK. BPBA GET IT RIGHT or your gonna kill the sport. Congrates to all class winners and you all are to be commended on braving the elements.
