Octopussy 2nd in the State Champs, WA 2012
20 / 03 / 2012
well done to the boys on Octopussy, with a 2nd place in the WA Champs held recently in Western Australia. Up against a mixed fleet including the always competitive vipers and Thompsons, wind conditions remained sub planing with a maximum of 8 knots over the 2 days.
Despite this, and despite the claims of some that the Shaws are unbeatable in the planing stuff but are harder to race in the light, Octopussy managed to even put up a win on line against the Ducks Nuts, a new T750, but in the end settled for 2nd on SMS handicap to them, proving that good graphics and a great name will beat everyone...unless they also have a great name.
