Two weeks ago the Canning Half Tide dock in Liverpool was home to the Clippers of the Round the World Clipper Race, yetserday it was boats of a very different sort as 37 Honda Power Racing boats gathered in the dock waiting to exit into the River Mersey. These are some of the 150HP and 225HP boats in the HF4S series making their final preparations for the races.
Unfortunately there was a bit of a problem as the lock gate jammed and they could not get out onto the river so had to make their way through the docks to an alternative exit. Once on the river though there was some spirited racing in th two classes. The final races of the season were held on the Saturday and Sunday to decide the championship winners for this year.
