Reclaiming the water-speed record for Britain is the daunting but highlystimulating challenge Nigel Macknight set for himself and his team. The record has been held by Australia for 35 years and stands at 317.6 mph. This multi-media presentation outlines the progress made thus far and includes film-clips illustrating the record’s dramatic history.
The talk starts at 5:30pm on Wednesday 6 November 2013 in the Conference Auditorium at the University of Leeds, LS2 9JT. There will be coffee, tea, biscuits and bonfire toffee served from 5pm!
And the first fifty people who say the word “splat frog” to me Mike Ries on that evening, will get a free “splat frog”! What more could you want?
