This might be the most exciting subspecialty of sports medicine you can possibly ever be part of. World Offshore Powerboat Racing is back in 2019 with new races and an expanded field. 120mph powerboats churning out over 1200 horsepower blasting through the Solent and English Channel. Dream. Ans, after the formation of the United Kingdom Offshore Powerboat Racers Association in 2018, Exile Medics are tasked with again supplying the expert medical support to the three rounds of the World Offshore Championships. We know these rounds are in the UK- but they won't always be.....and in the future we'll be back overseas.
If any sort of racing sounds like fun- then you need to get involved in this. If you’re into anything on the water- this is your time. There is no sensation like doing 80 mph across the sea in a ridiculously fast boat. We'll head down the night before, camp out somewhere and head onto the water the following day. You need to be comfortable on the water, getting a little wet and jumping boat to boat in an emergency.
This is not for the weak.

We know the video is from 2008, but its the most photogenic one we found...!
You need a tent, some camping equipment and warm waterproof clothes.
There is a £40 Exile Medics administration fee (including VAT) which covers public and employers liability insurance, clinical support and medical equipment. Its a good deal- promise. You will be transported to Guernsey from the South Coast, possibly on a powerboat, at no cost to yourself.
