Whippet Class (from the 1930s)

Editor’s note: I received this email and pics from Roy Cooper. If someone has any knowledge, please respond here or let Roy know. 

I was wondering if anyone might know anything about a British hydroplane class dating from the 1930s known as Whippet Class racing. Please see pic of magazine article from that period.
Also,  an engine known as the Whippet from the same period (please see other two pics courtesy of Time and Tide Boats). We have been offered to purchase the Whippet engine but have little idea of  its rarity or value.

Any assistance you can give on this would be much appreciated.
Kind regards,  Roy Cooper
