Britain’s Charlotte Camsey was in action at the Asia Powerboat Championship in Macau last weekend and she posted her best result to date.
The aerospace engineer from the West Country of England has followed the sport of Powerboat Racing from a young age and has been racing at her local club events in Exeter.
Last November she competed in the inaugural Asia Powerboat Championship held in Hong Kong.
However, the keen athlete, surfer and water lover started to show that she will be a force to be reckoned with in the future when on Sunday she finished third in the final heat of the championship in Macau.
Moreover, she kept her head whilst under extreme pressure from uber experienced racer Miles Jennings.
Jennings was desperate to pass her, his championship hopes hinged on it, but Charlotte held on for the third.
