NZ Offshore legend Graeme Horne passes

It is with deep regret that i inform you of the passing of one NZ Offshore Powerboat Racing’s legends & many times title & record holder, Graeme Horne. Graeme raced ‘E.I.T. Mover’ & ‘Fleetlease’ before he retired from racing after a bad accident in 1996. Graeme was a man I always admired & looked up to. As young 25 year old just starting out racing I was privileged to crew with Graeme Horne & Bob Menzies in the ‘Atlantic 1000 Race’ from Cairns to Brisbane in 1989. ‘Crunchie’ I will never forget the awesome times we had. Rest in peace old mate.
