Organisers of the annual Cowes-Torquay-Cowes powerboat race have taken the decision to cancel this year’s 60th-anniversary celebration – but there are hopes that some sort of powerboat action will take place in Cowes this year.
The British Powerboat Racing Club arrived at this difficult decision after much deliberation, taking into account a number of factors including the latest Government guidance relating to travel restrictions and social distancing in relation to the Global COVID-19 pandemic.
With fears that the anniversary would be compromised, the decision has been taken to postpone the celebrations until August 2021.
The BPRC would still like to host an offshore powerboat race on the weekend of 30th August 2020, but it is currently unclear whether restrictions wil allow this to happen or not. A final decision as to the viability of this will be made on Monday 15th June 2020.
