Shelley Jory Powerboating

Riding the waves at extreme speeds Riding the waves at extreme speeds In 2010, Rotary Watches scooped a fantastic partnership alliance. To celebrate the continued success of the Rotary Aquaspeed sports brand, the company took on the role of main partner sponsor to Shelley Jory , the award-winning Powerboat P1 pilot.

"In powerboat racing, timing is everything, so who better to have on board as a sponsor than world-renowned watch makers Rotary."

As the only female Powerboat P1 pilot to have scooped a grand prix in the 2009 championship with an all-female team, Shelley is quickly achieving celebrity status. Shelley's rise to fame began in 2005 when she took her first British title in the Honda Formula 4 Stroke Association powerboat championship. She made history in 2008 as the first woman to compete in the Evolution class of Powerboat P1, the Formula 1 of power boat racing.

Shelley at full throttle against the elements Shelley at full throttle against the elements Commenting on the sponsorship, Shelley said:

"In powerboat racing, timing is everything. A split second decision can win or lose you a race, so who better to have on board as a sponsor than world-renowned watch makers Rotary. Their new range of unisex contemporary sports watches, Rotary Aquaspeed, is perfect for me whilst racing. This collection of robust, waterproof yet stylish timepieces perfectly match the pace and performance I require in my life."
