5th APRIL  JA
CK RYAN

 

Dear Power Boating Members

It is with deep regret we advise the passing of a very distinguished member from within our sport.

Mr. Jack Ryan passed away yesterday 4/4/2017 and will be missed by many of us.

In recognition of his standing within our sport not only as a hugely successful competitor, some us even referred to Jack Ryan as "Sir Jack"

Sir Jack's history apart from designing and building all types of Race and pleasure boats for competitors throughout NZ....

Mainly centers around Hydroplane Racing. His first 100MPH came in Miss Cathy. After which Jack went on to set a new World Record of 166MPH at Lake Aviemore in Mainland Miss.


 


  
                  
                        
             nzpba.jpg
      


      
That was all well before GP ever existed and the creation of Cell Boats. In those days the Driver just sat in the breeze looking down the side of a huge engine as it was too high to look over the top. 

Jack's humor knowledge and love for our sport will be missed by many.

 

NZPBA

Breath Testing – The Club reserves the right to undertake alcohol breath testing on either morning of competition.

 

Prize Giving:

11th MARCH MANAWATU GOLD CUP

    Day one of the 2017 Gold Cup started off in wet conditions. After lunch the sun came out and the racing ran with only one incident causing stoppage.

Race of the day was the Sally Nagle Memorial final, with Foreno Tapware having to work really hard to overcome Boatary for the win.

Racing resumes tomorrow at 10.30am with the Gold Cup and the Bob Dunlop Memorial the feature events.

th MARCH WANGANUI POWER BOAT CLUB

 
             wanganuimbc.jpg

Less than 2 weeks until the Wanganui Motor Boat Clubs annual regatta. We really appreciate having these great sponsors come onboard with us this year to help us make this a great event, thanks also to the other couple of sponsors who wish to be low key. Thanks to Gary Gregory for his time in making this poster up.

 
 Bit of info on couple other things, we have chosen the best tide possible which will give us the opportunity to run on the river for the majority of the day, also the ramp has had an extensive amount of work done to it in recent months with the bottom 2 thirds of it being reconcreted as well as being extended into the river a bit further.
We will have the bar open from Friday night as well as a meal available Saturday night.
Whilst the early bird entry draw finishes tonight keep those entries coming in and let's make this a great weekend.

19th FEBRUARY ROTOITI REGATTA UPDATE

   ROTOITI POWERBOAT REGATTA  
                   1-2 APRIL 2017

Storage for North Island Boats Update:

We have just recently been advised that the owner of the building at the lake for

storage wants $48 per week per boat for storage.   The building is the Classic Boat

Museum, and is secure etc.  We are still trying to organize covered sites in Marlborough.  

 As noted already, any covered (shed) storage will be on a ‘first in - first serve’ basis. 

 Tow-age into Nelson MAY be needed but we will do our best to advise if this is required

as soon as possible (so that travel arrangements can be made).   We will keep you posted.

 

Thanks

2015 Southland Entry Form


17th January- NZPBA Nationals Lakeland Regatta - 4.15pm


Formula One Race 3 start Nick coles on the inside from Luke Sharp, Julian Stilwell and Derek McAdam.

Bit of a long and Drama packed day today, GP boats ever so reliable yesterday were dropping like flies in the first heat won by Jack Lupton from Scott Coker with no other finishers. The Boss had a Prop break, Lucas Oils and Steeler both stopped on the same turn and Warwick stopped as well.
In Heat 2 just the 4 boats started with Warwick pulling out on Lap 1, Jack was in front but came to a halt on lap 2. Steeler stopped just short of lap 3 but got going again to cross the line a Lap down. Scott's win gives him the NIGP and Master of Mangakino Titles with Jack in 2nd and Steeler in 3rd unofficially.

Drama in F1 on lap 3 of the first Heat Julian Stilwell fighting hard to pass Luke Sharp took out the Top Turn Buoy. The drivers agreed as part of the series to count the race with a penalty lap given to Julian dropping him to Last. Luke won from Derek and Nick Coles. In Race 2 it was Derek Mcadam had a good lead into the bottom turn of Lap 6 when he rolled on the turn and went upside down, he got himself out and was ok, the boats a little bit broken but should be good to go at Karapiro round. Only Luke and Julian would be credited as finishers in that race.

The Juniors had a moment on the Start when Jenny nose dived and sunk the driver was ok though. Two Junior races and 2 Clubmans during the day saw some good racing involved in both classes with plenty of boats on the water.

the NI GNH was won by Mike Harvey in Aquanaut winning both heats over Foreno Tapware and possibly New Obsession or Endorphin Rush in 3rd.
