Offshore Powerboat Racing - A New Era!

Facing reality - Change creates Opportunity!

Welcome to the ABPE website - and finding my COVE.

Having idled into the COVE I invite you to drop anchor, relax and peer into the depths of a passion that embraces offshore powerboat racing and observing the natural world - birds in particular. The cove is a place to contemplate how modern engine and fuel technology applied in our sport can help put these things in harmony. It's a place to reflect on the fragmentation and decline of 'spirit' in the sport I love - and to seek solutions. Solution that feed the passion to rebuild a lifestyle that reflects our true values, delights the senses - and ultimately restores that spirit! 

Step ashore at the QUAY to comprehend how real changes can only happen when passion inspires your willingness to engage. 

Visit the BOATSHED, to appreciate how a love of offshore powerboat racing technology and wildlife can harmonise when ‘clean’ fuel presents superior efficiency, power and economy. 

Consider how NATURE can provide all the power we need, as we transcend the shameful history of fossil fuels and welcome the enhanced performance and natural balance of biofuels. . 

Consider how today’s realities – technical, environmental and commercial - can revive and re-create the noble SPIRIT of authentic ‘offshore’ powerboat competition in a 21st century synergy with nature. 

Finally, relax among friends on the BEACH, enjoy the lifestyle and catch up with the scuttlebut on the BLOG!

Facing Realities!

The focus of this website is a passion for offshore powerboat racing - it acknowledges the history and spirit of the sport and traces the sad decline as the focus drifted from the original ‘ocean challenge’ concept, toward a ‘speed at all cost’ culture. It examines and analyses the issues of an amateur sport in global disarray – in an era where professional motorsports thrive while embracing community and corporate environmental expectations and values.

Science, Technology & Lifestyle!

The realities of climate change are acknowledged, while illustrating that you - and our beautiful sport - can indeed, ‘Do Something’! Change means opportunities, as a new era of powerboat technology is set against the backdrop imagery of beautiful tropical islands - and a compelling ocean-sport demostrating irrefutable evidence of performance, value and responsibility. A true breath of fresh air reviving a sport, industry and lifestyle.
