Default The Grand Haven races were GREAT!

The weather was good, well not quite as sunny as last year, but there are no sunburns. Besides it rained all day at home. The water was perfect. As perfect as it can be anyway with 40 boats running from 70-140 mph!
Spiderman was running real strong untill it broke a prop shaft.
The beach was packed and the horizon was filled with boats/spectators. It was a great day. Nice job Cheri and Marc.

I've got a bunch of pics, but have to to take them off the camera first. I'll post them in a little while.

Fortess ran well and looked great out on the water.

I wonder if he is steering with his feet?

Let's Play and Twisted Styx were running side by side the hole race. back and forth on everylap. Great racing!!!
Twisted Styx hit Liquid Metals wake as thye passed them and came out of the water on it's side! Then delaminated part of the hull when they landed.
Let's play stopped racing right a way to make sure they were ok. Twisted Styx was able to get back on plane to get into the infield, then Let's play continued on to race and win.
Now that's class!! Great racing and sportsmanship. Way to go guys.
I'm glad the twisted Styx team is ok.
