This weekend the P1 Powerboat championships take place on the Humber in what I've read is called the Grand Prix of the Sea. This year there's a bit of local interest after a group local businesses had a whip round and bought One Hull of a Boat [ 1 ]. Personally I take the Miss Brodie approach to fast boats :“For those who like that sort of thing, that is the sort of thing they like.”
The Weekend in Black & White is here.
Postscript: Oh dear! The crew of One Hull of a Boat were taken to hospital after it flipped over and crashed.  Still thrills and spills are what this game is all about isn't it?
