The UIM Safety Award was presented to Rob Irvine Chairman of the Osprey Powerboat Rescue Team in Monaco last March.
The Osprey Powerboat Rescue Team were recognised for their invaluable safety coverage during F1 H2o, F4S and the Nations Cup.
Although Irvine was on hand in the principality to receive the award, he wanted to share it with the rest of the team and the London F1H2o event seemed the perfect place.
Chris Davies captured the team by Royal Victoria Dock, unfortunately UIM President Dr. Raffaele Chiulli’s heavy work load at the weekend didn’t allow for him to feature in the picture.
John raced Offshore UIM Class 3 in the 1980’s & 1990’s.
He served as the Cowes Torquay Cowes Event Director for 4 years, including running the 50 th Anniversary Event in 2010.
He has recently organised 4 British Offshore races under UKOPRA sanction.
He is the Editor of Powerboat Racing World.
