The attached leaflet (click on the logo
to download) has been put together
to support our application to the UIM.
As you will see we have now
amalgamated with offshore, pleasure
navigation and the P750 (Thunder-
cats) disciplines to fabricate a strong
foundation. We also propose to include these areas of the sport in future race event plans. The leaflet will be formally presented at the UIM General Assembly in October, following this we will be given an answer as to whether our application was successful, if so from the 1st of January 2019 the BPBA will become the UK’s national authority.

With the clubs AGM fast approaching we are looking for new recruits to join the current management team. Each & every position is available & up for grabs but we also have a few vacancies......
Club Secretary to serve as a director: This appointment will be one of responsibility & importance, the ideal candidate will be required to attend decisive meetings & join the other directors to make critical decisions for the club.
Hydroplane Drivers Representative: We need a hands on connected individual that has links to the hydro competitors & crew. You will be the voice of the drivers & also have your say at the clubs monthly management meetings.
Junior Drivers Representative: Again much the same as the hydroplane candidate but with the added need to liaise with the competitors parents and teams. It’s also an advantage to spare the time to support the training team with new driver development at our taster/training events.
Entertainments Representative: A motivated fun loving individual is required to grow our social events both during the closed season and at race nights. This position also includes the organisation & responsibilities of the annual awards ceremony & our future intention to push forwards with corporate sponsored race evenings.
All of the above vacancies require the chosen candidates to attend our monthly management meetings & to be flexible, forward thinking and approachable within their role. With the announcement of the RYA’s withdrawal from the sport, we now intend that the future is hopefully one of improved security & development at our club & we hope that these positions are filled with positive, passionate & pro active candidates.
We will also be on the look out for additional volunteer gate & pit marshals for the start of the 2019 season as well.
Now is the time for you to make a difference !
