Dell won that series due to a navigation error by a local, Peter Henley in a cat.

Lower Heads seams to ring a bell, I ' ll ask him in 10 days times time...errrr best not...

But it was 20 years ago, and Dell ended up buying a cat.

Which he had a spill in, and didn't race again!?

My Grandmother had a hip replacement, but I don't recall her ever going powerboat racing!
