Powerboat archive

This web site has been created to maintain the history of modern day powerboat racing using various material from my archives. I began an interest in the sport when embarking on a career in Naval Architecture at Vosper Ltd which at the time was building the 1962 Cowes - Torquay winner Tramontana One. Having an interest in photography as well as keeping countless reports and result sheets has with the demise of the National Motorboat Museum, has given greater urgency to have an easy accessible means of referencing the Raceboat history of the last 50 years. There are many moments which stand out over the last 50 years, such as 'Telstar' winning the Cowes - Torquay - Torquay in 1968, or the extremely rough Cowes - Torquay - Torquay of 1971, so hopefully this web site will recall many more memorable occasions for those who visit the site. Powerboat Archive is continuing to add photographs, films and race information and thanks must go to John Walker and Ray Bulman for allowing the use of their extensive collections. If you have any material you wish to contribute please contact me, there is still a lot missing from our racing past.
