But strangely enough not announced until after the new Grand Prix Offshore series (or whatever its called) confirmed that they took control of one of SBI prizes sites.??

and please try and save the class was eliminated way before nonsense, you know as well as I do that John's happy to fit any high dollar team/boat into a class or make one (if the price is right)$$
