The Grand Prix of the Sea returns to Stokes Bay this weekend with sports fans and families set to converge on the Gosport peninsula.

The support from everyone in Gosport is tremendous and we want to put on another outstanding show of marine motorsport and family entertainment

P1 chief operating officer Robert Wicks

Back by popular demand, the thrills and spills of P1 SuperStock and AquaX racing revisit the Solent’s waters following a successful debut showing last year.

And with the opportunity to see a fleet of powerboats and jet skis do battle in high-speed action, P1 chief operating officer Robert Wicks is promising onlookers another stunning show.

He said: ‘The support from everyone in Gosport is tremendous.

‘We want to put on another outstanding show of marine motorsport and family entertainment.

‘Both of our race series are hugely competitive this season and with national titles to be won you wouldn’t expect anything else.

‘It will be a great day out.’

The two-day programme will include jet ski freestyle displays between races from national champions Lee Stone and Jason Bleasdale.

And one of the best places to marvel at the back flips and barrel rolls will be on board the Gosport Ferry as it cruises the waters off Stokes Bay tomorrow.

Gosport Ferry finance director Chris Waters said: ‘As a key transport link between the two communities of Portsmouth and Gosport, we are proud to be supporting the Grand Prix of the Sea that was such a success last year.’

The action will take place between midday and 5pm on both days.
