Round Britain 2012 announces cash purse for Sea race winner

'Beaverbrook Round Britain Trophy'    Round Britain 2012
Round Britain 2012 is a Land, Sea and Air marathon, being held throughout the UK next year. The event organisers are pleased to announce a thirty five thousand pound (£35,000) cash 'purse' for the overall winner of the Round Britain 2012 Sea race.

The winners will also receive the Beaverbrook Round Britain Trophy. This will be presented by Lord Beaverbrook whose family have long been involved in prestigious international power boat racing.

The 'purse' will include a fifteen thousand pounds (£15,000) cash prize together with a 'goody bag' worth five thousand pounds (£5000) and free entry into the 2016 Round Britain powered marathon, worth up to fifteen thousand pounds (£15,000). Cash prizes will also be awarded to the second and third place competitors. Information on the prizes and the awarding criteria are available online.

RB12 is a new and unique event featuring 50 cars, 50 boats and 50 aircraft competing around Britain simultaneously. The event starts and finishes at the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy, venue for the 2012 Olympic sailing events.

The Sea race is recognised by the UIM as a World Cup status event. It is run under the auspices of the RYA, the national body for power boat racing.

RB12 Director Hugo Ambrose said 'As organisers we are keen to put marathon powered racing on a professional and sustainable footing and to raise the level of reward for successful competitors. We hope the race for the 'purse' will add further challenge to what is already one of the biggest endurance tests for the teams and their power boats'

Commenting on the awarding of the trophy for this edition of the Round Britain race Lord Beaverbrook said 'I am delighted to offer the Beaverbrook Round Britain Trophy to the overall winner of Round Britain Sea 2012. This edition of the race will be particularly exciting as it offers the competitors in the Sea race the chance to compare their endeavours with those in the air and on the roads. I am looking forward to meeting all of the competitors at the end of this unique marathon'.
