Well..............what a awesome day. very well organised with over 30 drivers in different boats.
everything from small 3.4m boats through to 5m boats and everything in between.

Would like to thank Hugh and co for such a great day out, very well done and hope to have more of these types of events.
everyone got plenty of turns on the track with only a few popping out of the track with no one or boat hurt.
have some pics which I will resize and post later.
Once again cheers and well done guys.

P.s, dropped Clark off at the ferry with his boat, he is a happy camper.

Results.........everyone won as we started using the timing system but most didn't bother to grab the transponder
so the timing was canned in the afternoon and we all just went out hooning really OoOoO OoOoO

some pics attached, I went out with Clarks camera and got some shots. hopefully he will post them up when he gets organised

Clark and I went out for a run, me driving. he didn't handle it real well. lets just say he screams like a school girl ()() ()()
I only had one slight off.....tried to cut a corner and clipped the island and we popped out of the track, then Clark was punching me in the head, thank god for helmets I say, not only good in a crash but also good for over zealous Navs. jaw jaw
