Peow Peow Wins Queensland ASBA Sportboat Titles 2nd Year in a Row
15 / 11 / 2011
Shaw 650 Peow Peow sailed by a team out of Brisbane, Queensland, wrapped up the State Championship for the 2nd year in a row, bouncing back from a somewhat average 1st day to put on a hard charge in day 2 and take the win.
Sadly, Mister Magoo, overnight leaders were unable to hold their first place due to a sick crew member; health comes first and no doubt the T7 will be up and racing next time out. Bad luck fella.
SNAFU and Whaka both showed moments of brilliance; Situation Normal put together some Peow Peow beating results in 2 races, but a tough first day put a podium place out of reach, and losing out to Whaka in the tie break. Well done to all the Shaw teams participating, and the next big regatta is Geelong, early 2012 where preliminary checks show there could be as many as 5-6 Shaw 650s racing down in South Australia.
Situation Normal Shaw 650 leading Melges 24 Kaito, Stealth 8 No Limits and Shaw 650 Peow Peow around the top mark
