Broad Bean returned from a very successful World Championships in October which was held in Malta where they achieved 5th overall in the modified class. The team then went onto Coniston to take part in the World Speed Record Attempts where they established the UIM P750 Modified class World Speed Record and the National record at 66.92 mph. Congratulations guys. Both Malachy Browne and Tom Williams-Hawkes are born and bred, 3rd generation powerboat racers from the River Exe. Tom cut his teeth with brother Charlie in the Round Britain 08 Race in an old Revenger 25. They finished the race in 17th place out of over 40 starters as smallest and lowest powered boat, winning the Youngest Crew Award and the Brand-Crombie Perpetual Trophy for Outstanding Effort. Tom has raced in Cowes - Torquay - Cowes 4 times!!
