The event featuring international F1 champions Mette Brandt Bjerknes who flew in from Norway and John Masters who came down from the UK was held over the weekend. The duo test drove two of the newly acquired F1 boats through their paces, providing a breath-taking water display for onlookers.

The event was supported by the Minister of Megapolis and Western Development  Patali Champika Ranawaka and Minister of Sports Dayasiri Jayasekara who have identified Waters Edge as a potential area for the development of water sports in Sri Lanka. Waters Edge’s Chairman Chamath de Silva, General Manager Rohan Fernandopulle and Director Strategic Initiatives Enoj Muthukumarana were also instrumental in securing this event for the hotel.

VVIP and VIP guests experienced the thrills of 100 knots or more over an extravagant brunch with unlimited cocktails and seating with a prominent view. 

This one of a kind experience was brought to you by Waters Edge, the Lanka Power Boat Association, Coca- Cola, Anchor Professionals, Chelsea Tea, Nestle, and Asia Pacific Brewery. The organizers handed over all proceeds from the event for relief efforts, the statement said.
