Powerboat fans can now watch the Honda British Formula Four Stroke Powerboat championship online. The service has been made possible by using an on-board camera and wireless access points from Global Secure Systems.

Team AppGate Mermaid raced with a video camera on board, transmitting live video pictures to shore over a standard 802.11 wireless network.

"Spectators can now get a taste of the thrill of racing onboard a Formula Four Stroke Powerboat," said David Hobson, driver of AppGate Mermaid.
