The Guernsey Powerboat Association (GPA) are well advanced in their planning of 3 UIM international championships to be held on the Channel Island in September.
The club will be hosting UIM World Championships for Offshore Classes 3A and 3B and the V24 European Championship.
Already behind the Championships are a impressive list of Event Partners including the government backed Visit Guernsey, Condor Ferries and the Guernsey Sports Commission.
Entries for the Event are looking strong too, with 8 intentions to enter UIM Class 3A even before the GPA has posted the official Entry form.
Deb Sauvarin who is on the Guernsey2017 organising committee told me;
The support we are getting on the Island for the Event is so positive.
Everyone here wants to see Guernsey2017 be a great success and show off our amazing Island to teams from abroad.
Our Advance Notice is nearly ready to go out and we have designed 3 super courses, the third race will include racing through the legendary Gouliot Passage.
UIM Classes 3A and 3B will race on September 6th and will be joined by the UIM V24 boats on the 9th and 10th.
