Default Laith Pharoan former Offshore World Chmp getting closer after 3 years in tunnel boats

F1 Inshore World: Scott Gillman again !!!
" Cagliari, Sardinia, May 30, 2004…. Crowds lined the shores today at the Mediterranean Grand Prix, certain that a fellow Italian would win the title – and it certainly looked that way for most of this race with Cantando far out in the lead.

By lap fifteen the line up remained the same with Cantando in 1st and Pharaon battling to close the gap between them. World Champion Cappellini was also driving aggressively determined to overtake in spite of the rough conditions and high winds.

Cappellini’s goal was soon realised on lap 20 when team mate Marcello Menegatto who while being lapped by Pharaon on the outside, provided the opportunity for Cappellini to come up on the inside and quickly move quickly into 2nd place.

Victory was however short lived and by the next lap, electrical problems caused Cappellini’s boat to stop completely forcing him out of the race – a bitter disappointment to both his team and fans. "

Laith was closer last year when he finished 2nd in the Championship points. Immediately after Guido took him on the inside, vibration from a damaged prop sheared the bolts to his gearcase leaving him pointless

It's a lot tougher when the other racers "shoot back" .

This time tomorrow I'll be having dinner in Key Largo with one of those foreign Formula One boat racers.


Our guys might not be as handsome as Laith, but they're just as much fun!!!!

I sure hope Florida can handle this rowdy bunch...
Be afraid ...be very afraid...
