P1 Panther continues to roam the UAE

Boat Owner Middle East's Steve Chalmers P1 Panther's latest fan!

P1 Panther in action

Like most, we enjoy entertaining. And like most, we thrill at past-times that are tinged with adrenaline. So when the opportunity arose to entertain and thrill Steve Chalmers, Boat Owner Middle East's Editor, in our most favourite past-time we jumped - in fact we both jumped!

A glorious Dubai morning and a still Dubai Creek awaited Azam and Steve. Our lady cut through the water beautifully and the calmness of the surface was enough to give Steve a feel for actual racing, it was reasonably easy for him to imagine how competitive it can, and does, get.

"Thanks to the tight courses, and the intelligent boat design, race courses can be positioned close to shore providing unparalleled spectator viewing. If you get a chance, go watch - you’ll love it"

The Panther struck again and another fan is firmly in her grasp! We agree with Steve that you'll love P1 UAE SuperStock Championship series - it's just around the corner.
