Making a real effort this year to expand my YouTube channel to all things RC and beyond. I had never even come across offshore RC powerboat racing.

Brings back some distant but great memories for me. My Grandfather on my Mother's side used to own a Butchers shop in Southampton. Every few weeks my folks would drive down there with my Sister and I to visit. I can remember going out to the Southampton coast and docks area, sitting on my Dad's shoulders and watching guys drive their radio controlled boats around in the sea. That was like 35 years ago.....
