P1 Powerboat Grand Prix of the Seas - Inverclyde


A first for Inverclyde as the P1 Grand Prix of the Sea was held in Scotland for the first time.

The sun shone, the boats and their crews did their bit, the crowds turned out in appreciation, and it was another very successful venture for Inverclyde.

An estimated 22,000 people attended today and everyone seemed to be having a good time and enjoying the spectacle.

As well as the Powerboat and Jet Ski races there were various displays offshore with freestyle Jet Ski and Flyboard fun.

Another day tomorrow though the forecast suggests we may be back to more typical Greenock summer weather.
