Speed@Seawork is sponsored by OSI Maritime Systems and equipment exhibitors include Axnes and Marlborough Communications.

The organisers, Mercator Media, say RORC’s new clubhouse facilities above the berths at Trinity Landing, with views across the Solent, are the perfect base to demonstrate specialist fast craft and equipment.
