22/7/2012 - Clubmans Manawatu Run

Yesterday 8 Boats took part in a fun run up the river to the Opiki bridge. It was 36 miles upriver and the conditions were perfect. Those taking part learnt a lot about there boats and there fuel mileage and are keen to do similar runs in the future. Only two boats didn't make it all the way to the bridge with one of them needing to be towed back with gearbox issues. Everyone else returned under their own Steam.
Interest in the Clubmans class is growing with more boats being found and more racing members for the community. People are attracted to the affordability of the Class and the Level playing field that the Handicap and Scratch racing can Offer
