Team spirits were high on this glorious day and ‘YoYoYoYa Boat’ came 2nd in their 1st heat against ‘Grip n Pull Pirates’ (Gripple Ltd) and team Loadhog in a time of 64.04 seconds over the 200m course! Dawn kept the teams timing in check as the role of ‘drummer’ in all 3 heats. ‘YoYoYoYa Boat’ triumphed in their second heat coming in 1st place against ‘Steel City Sinkers’ and ‘First4lawyers’ in 64.08 seconds and then went on to gain another 2nd place in their third heat against the ‘Aztec Dragons’ and ‘Dirty Oars’ in a time of 65.02 seconds.

A fantastic effort by all the crew and support crew and all the people at PMS Diecasting (and their families) who turned up to cheer our team on. THANK YOU ALL!
