How we all miss this young lady!

Major Mandy Islam MBE sadly passed away a year ago today.

Mandy was ambitious and determined to achieve things no matter what or how ill she was although her health prevented an Round Isle of Wight record attempt with Vee Ganjavian in his Ilmor powered Phantom USA hull.

**Do you like a good book and read!

An adventure story for both Adults and Children with a mix of Classic Offshore Powerboats from the 60's.

Our BPRC friend Valentina Macchi has just released these stunning stories based in and around our beautiful Isle of Wight.

Shady Lady N.15 was built on the Island with the purpose to race in the late 60's and 70's. She is now restored and ready to return to Cowes Powerboat Weekend in 2021.

Adults will empathize with the Shady Lady family and children will feel soothed by this musical read.

The covers were created by the amazing local Isle of Wight l artist Simon, also creator of the Wight book cover and were also printed on the Island, by Meridian 3.

Retail price for each book is ÂŁ9.99.
