1 Hour Payload – 16th May
The evening for the 1st of the payload challenge endure event saw a nice sunny evening with a variable light breeze. There were six entrants with Arley arriving early to try out his just finished challenge boat. The honours of the night went to Chris locke, finishing only slightly ahead of Bob Bryant. Steve Coles finished 3rd, with the first 3 going the full one hour, Malcolm’s boat finished 4th expiring 10 minutes from the end. Sadly for Arley his boat did not start, a bit too finely engineered, still 9 weeks to get it sorted and perfected for the next event. Russell had the usual pre event gibberish and as a result ended up providing the comedy of the night. His boat provided to be a little temperamental through out the event, with Russell jumping in and out of the rescue boat to retrieve his boat. His boat managed 9 laps and finished 5th and last. Russell complete about two laps in the rescue boat, no points for that!
