The weekend saw 11 boats vying for podium positions as the racing season reaches its penultimate weekend. With adrenaline levels at their usual high levels the competition was fierce amongst the boats making the spectator friendly North Beach course and added bonus for those watching.
With mere points between Nosferatu and the championship the Vapormatt boat put on an excellent performance; with Saturday's race providing a hard battle out front between Nosferatu and its closest rival, Magnum Force. However Magnum Force struggled with the pace and a broken gearbox allowed Nosferatu to go on and claim second place.
Sunday proved to be equally as exciting with Magnum Force, on gearbox number two, offering another strong challenge for Nosferatu. The two boats were neck and neck for the first half dozen laps which involved some excellent overtaking by Nosferatu. On entering the final few laps it seemed as though the weekend was not meant for Magnum Force and a broken propeller meant a second early retirement giving Nosferatu the gap it needed to claim victory.
The final, and championship, race will be held over the last weekend of August.
