James Tapp and Scott Brown secured the 2018 RYA P750 ThunderCat National Championship at Rother Valley today.
It’s been a tough season for the pair who only started racing together at the start of the 2018 season.
We gradually got quicker, but not before a few of my old rivals came out of the woodwork to keep us on our toes.
Winning the surf round at the world famous Fistral Beach on the north coast of Cornwall proved to be their highlight:
It’s a beautiful event where the fantastic surf conditions never disappoint.
Next stop for them and several of the ThunderCat teams will be the P750 World Championships in Frejus, France at the end of September.
Today we tested a few propellers around this circuit as its going to be similar condition in France.
Tapp was amazed when he saw one their rival French teams in the race pits today keeping a watching brief on the British teams:
We’re going there with no preconceived ideas about how we will do as we know the international teams are quick, they found out today though that we are not going to be slow.
