Those nice people from Bosch!

The Southampton Boat Show always throws up something interesting and new. This year was no exception. We were introduced to a new competition called the Royal Thames Mansura Trophy.

It’s an intriguing name so we caught up with Jack Edwards who is Chairman of the trophy committee at the Royal Thames Yacht Club and asked what the competition is about.

The Trophy is in association with Bosch Engineering and we thoroughly enjoyed chatting to the chaps from Bosch, not least because they get to play with (well,they call it engine management!) some of the world’s leading car brands including Ferrari and McLaren.

Jean-Pierre Lihou from Bosch told us why Bosch is interested in the trophy.
