Zap Catting
Zap Cats are amazingly light and powerful inflatable catamarans capable of pulling 3g around the turns. With a power to weight ratio of 340bhp per tonne, you have to have your wits about you as you're not just a passenger on this thing you're the co-pilot! You'll be responsible for balancing the boat for the turns on the sea, just like any catamaran, but at high speed - the expert driver pulls 90 and 180 degree turns at speeds of around 40mph. Not one for the faint-hearted!

Seeing as you'll be ripping it up over the high seas, you'll be wearing drysuits, lifejackets and helmets as safety is paramount for this high speed adventure as you push the limits in time trials for a zapcat experience that you will never forget.

Everyone will finish the day tired but with huge smiles! Grip tight and hang on, it'll be fast and fun.
