Hi Folks
For those interested this vid clip shows a bit of pre-race testing, my twin brother with his B-Class Challenger and I with A-Class Crusader III....it was nice to do a few laps in relaxed conditions without race pressures>

Have you been out to test your boat(s) prior to the next race?

Cheers
Craig :-))

Hi craig yes a great day testing. I nearly gave up with my boat after it conked out and i spent 3 hours trying to get it running again. It was only my (inexperienced) good lady wife who spotted the fact that my manifold had come loose, and having fixed it at 5pm, got the boat running again!


Have spent a good few hours in the shed getting it ready again but wont have time to test it for sunday, so the run will be a gamble. But heho, great fun should be expected in anycase!

Nice video!  Good to see you practicing chasing round the buoys together (always a handy talent to have) and they both seem pretty quick  :-))

I'm looking forward to a day out from our building site!!

See you Sunday
Danny
