One of the best powerboat events for a long time - I think 28 teams in the end - great organisation and a lot of happy people.

Hopefully the start of RIB racing making a strong return.

Lifted these results - which I'm sure will be ok.

We were running just behind the 'Going Lean' Phantom Evolution with the 250 e-Tec, until we spun a propeller bush! Think they probably speeded up towards the end though.

Yes - had the KR7 with a 150 E-Tec in Formula 4 - and to be honest about the best package you get for the class, rough or calm. We were leading the class by a long way, running behind the Phantom Evolution with a 250 E-Tec. However we spun a propeller bush on the second lap - so a no finish.

As always - to finish first - first you have to finish

Anyway - really enjoyed the event and best bit was seeing so many happy people at a race meeting.
