Hibernia Racing's 100 mph ALLBLACK SL44 entry into the Round Ireland Venture Cup that begins in 25 days time was in training on Dublin Bay yesterday. The sleek aluminium built craft that was testing in Cork Harbour a month ago was powering around Dublin Bay yesterday in the build up the the long distance race.
The crew for the 700–miler is John Ryan, Driver and throttles, Philip Fitzgibbon, Navigation and co-driver, Ant Middleton (lead presenter from C4's series, SAS dare to win).
The four man powerboat took a pit stop at Dun Laoghaire to load up with fuel. The massive onboard tanks take up to 1500 litres of a diesel giving her a range of over 500 miles.
