Great venue, good facilities and some good old fashioned fun and games, coupled to some challenging water conditions made this a great event.
I am sure Mr Fuller will be pleased to know that my old P21, expertly driven by Alastair, showed the batboats the way home on Saturday in some real testing conditions. Al drove it like a veteran to totally dominate the race with the rest of us floundering. You would not have guessed he was still running with a green band around the engine cowling signifying he was a provisional driver. It was a well deserved win and an example to those who are thinking of coming into the sport.
All credit to the safety crews and the officials for sticking it out on Saturday and giving the crowds of spectators some great action.
Personally I think this multi class racing is the way forward with the few boats that there are now in each class. Having 3c running with OCR gave the spectators something to watch as well as giving the crews the racing they wanted.
