The final of the 2018 OCRDA Championship is now set to be in Herne Bay, Kent.
Scotland is the only UK nation missing from the OCRDA calendar now that Holyhead, Wales has signed up for the 2018 racing calendar. After Milford Haven withdrew from the racing calendar Holyhead on the island of Anglesey joins Torquay, West Bay, Howth in Ireland, and the Finale in Herne Bay, Kent another new venue to conclude the twenty race five venue OCRDA championship.
Holyhead is an interesting venue in as much as it accommodates commercial shipping (ferries to Dublin), an active fishing industry together with the hustle and bustle of the seasonal leisure activity.

Herne Bay in Kent (pictured left), where the famous bouncing bombs designed by Barnes Wallis were tested in 1942, is to be the 5th and last venue of the OCRDA 2018 championship. This will be the first time that offshore powerboat racing will have been staged at Herne Bay at least in the last 30 years.
