Raymarine Sponsors Team Pulsar 2010 in Around Ireland Powerboat Race

4th June 2010
Raymarine Sponsors Team Pulsar 2010 in Around Ireland Powerboat Race

Raymarine is continuing its support of Team Pulsar Racing for the Around Ireland Offshore Powerboat Race 2010, providing the team with its latest navigation equipment.

Team Pulsar Racing’s Quinquari-Humber RIB Milwaukee Seawolf will be fitted with two new Raymarine E Series Widescreen multifunction displays, which will work seamlessly with the existing Raymarine AIS500 Automatic Identification System and HD Digital Radome. The Around Ireland Offshore Powerboat Race will start on June 7 2010 and will be made up of six legs over a period of six days, starting and finishing in Galway. The boats will travel at speeds between 40 – 60 knots and will have to tackle a variety of different sea conditions, while racing against 50 other high-speed powerboats.

In September 2009 Team Pulsar took the record for the fastest circumnavigation of Ireland in a record time 19 hours 9 minutes and 50 seconds. Having already completed the 704 nautical-mile circuit, Team Pulsar Racing has detailed knowledge of the conditions and sea area, which they are hoping will put the odds in their favour for the race.

Justin Mc Inerney, Team Pulsar Racing’s manager, said “The Raymarine equipment we used for the successful round Ireland record attempt last year guided us through rough conditions and was always reliable. Adding the latest E Series Widescreen means we will be able to see and use more data on larger screens. The fact that the E Series has dual control capabilities means we’ll be able to use it when averaging 50 knots during the race, which is something you can’t do with touch screens”.

Raymarine will be hosting an open day with CH Marine on the 9th of July, where both of Team Pulsar’s boats taking part in the Around Ireland Offshore Powerboat Race will be on display to the public for the day. Visitors will be able to see the high-speed RIB’s just a few weeks after they have taken part in the endurance race and be able to ask questions about the boats, the equipment used and the electronics.
