Production Shaw 650 Octopussy Wins Division of Australian Sportsboat Nationals 2013; 2nd overall!
11 / 04 / 2013
A huge congratulations to Rees Howell and crew, who travelled from Perth to Melbourne, to race against the East Coast's best sportsboat crews including the newly launched Audi Burwood Racing of Mr Ellis and the mighty green Monkey Business of Cam Rae.
In the end, sailing in light breezes, Rees showed great downwind speed and good tactics to finish 2nd overall, winning the 'lightweight' sportsboat division, with Monkey Business 2nd in the division and 4th overall. Audi Burwood managed a 1st in division in 1 race, and overall finished a respectable 6th in their first nationals.

With PORNSTAR now sold and heading over to Victoria in May, and the first production Shaw 650 heading stateside in June, things are looking 'shaw good'
