Not quite the same thing................  but, back in the late 1970's we hels a 24hour radiosailing event using radio Marbleheads.  The event was organised be the Ashton Park MYC Manchester.

It was an endurance event (rather like WLYC event for dinghys)  and you had to complete as many laps of the cource as possible in 24 hours.  1 boat with up to 3 sailors was the team. 

The event was wone by the local club members 2 Barry's  Jackson & Axon. 

It was held at a rether inclement time of the year....early November.  We had Fog, Rain, Sleet, BUT very little wind!!

In later years, we held the event at Fleetwood over the longest day weekend  ...........much better.

Perhaps we should revive the event??
