Oban Duncan, the 13-year old recipient of the Royal Yachting Association, ‘Scotland Young Person of the Year’, was testing Gordon Cook’s F4 hull at Wyboston Lakes last weekend.
In 2018, the lady racer from Balloch, West Dunbartonshire, won the GT15 British Sprints, was runner-up in the British National Championship and won the RYA Honda Rib Championship.
Gordon Cook who has successfully been running powerboat ‘Experience Days’ for 3 years now, has F2, F4, GT60, and GT15 boats for newcomers to the sport to drive, learn in and develop their racing technique.
Cook commented on Oban’s debut run in his F4 BaBa hull:
You can see that Oban ‘has it’, she was immediately quick.
Oban told Powerboat Racing World:
Last season was amazing, and I never expected to get so far.
The opportunity of driving Gordon’s F4 boat allowed me to round it off on a high note.
