Venture Cup Powerboat Race - June 2016

June 14, 2016

The race, which takes place in Ireland in June, will see 25 of the world’s best teams battling it out over seven days of incredible action on the water in a spectacle only matched by the party in each of the ports on route.  Billed as the world’s longest, toughest and most prestigious powerboat race, ‘Venture World Cup’ features the biggest, loudest and fastest boats in the world. 

Crewing them, alongside the top names in the sport, are big names not normally associated with the sea - names such as male supermodel David Gandy, and motorsport legend Bruno Senna.
