Octopussy - Victorious (shouldn\'t that be Perthious?)
Shaw 650 winning Western Australia yacht racing
Well done to Rees Howell and team, winning the Australian Western Australian State Titles in sportsboats for 2012.
Sailing in mostly light conditions, they managed to win under SMS handicap against a decent fleet including Thompsons and Viper 640s, proving that while the Shaw is extremely competitive in planing breeze (first to plane, ability to plane deep, very very quick) in the subplaning conditions the Shaw is still very much a winning boat.
Having raced the boat for around 12 months now, Rees and his team are a consistent performer in WA, we wish them well for the next 12 months!
