Following the success of the 1999 Round Britain RIB Rally, Alan Priddy's
Offshore Expeditions are now planning for Round Britain 2001: 25 May
- 1 June.
This will be a fairly adventurous cruise, but it is planned to allow
for a good amount of socialising too! For the 2001 event, hard hulled
boats as well as RIBs are eligible for entry, with a minimum length
of 6.0 metres and a maximum of 600 horsepower.
This will not be a race, but it's not going to be a holiday either!
All entries will have to satisfy the organisers that they are capable
of covering 200 nautical miles a day and be able to cope with inclement
weather if necessary. The start and finish will be at Cardiff, with
a provisional itinerary as follows:
Day / Route / Distance
1. Cardiff - Holyhead - 200 2. Holyhead - Oban - 200
3. Oban - Kinlochbervie - 160 4. Kinlochbervie - Peterhead
- 160 5. Peterhead - Hartlepool - 180 6. Hartlepool -
Great Yarmouth - 170 7. Great Yarmouth - Brighton - 160 8.
Brighton - Falmouth - 200
9. Falmouth - Cardiff - 180
