WORLD WATER SPEED RECORD
Thu 26th October 2017
Speaker: Nigel McKnight

THIS TALK IS TO RUN AT THE A.G.M.

Nigel is the leader of a team working very hard to win the World Water Speed Record back for Britain. He will also be driving the boat being built in Lincolnshire for this purpose, which is calledQuicksilver. Construction of the craft is well advanced, although there is still more work to do before they can float it on the water and begin trials.The record has stood for 38 years, to Australia, at a speed of 317.60 mph. Britain has not held the record since Donald Campbell’s day – 1967...During a large part of his life Nigel has earned his living as a writer, and this brought him into contact with many fascinating characters, ranging from Buzz Aldrin to Tommy Cooper and his talk features some references to this period of his life, which also included flying twice with the Red Arrows.
