A late start to Bartica’s Summer Regatta 2012 last Sunday saw the scheduled programme of seventeen Power Boats Racing events, running way beyond the scheduled time, as the races concluded in fading light.
However, the day’s accident-free programme, which was suspended at one point due to eventual gusty winds and rough waters, did not stop Jaguar, Quick Silver, Iron Charlie and Out and Bad from dominating proceedings when their
respective races were held.
Spectators there were definitely treated to keen competitive Power Boat Racing rivalry, especially in the 75hp to 90hp category, between the entries of 3:16 Piloted by Dave Younge and eventual category Champion, Orin Keith Montgomery Belle a/k Monty and his entry “Iron Charlie”. Hosea Jardine and his entry “Out and Bad” yet again ruled things in the 40hp Category as the eventual Champion entry.
Also in the 115hp to 200hp category Sean Belle and the entry “Quick Silver” emerged as eventual Champion for this Category after having staved off a valiant challenges from Steven Belle and “Tattianna”, with Selwyn “Pops” Joseph and his entry “The Girls them Sugar” and Pomeroon’s, Henry Da Silva and his entry “Cyzie Boy” giving creditable performance in this category also.
In the 225hp and unlimited category, Davenarine Persaud a/k Dave Scott and “Jaguar” convincingly took control of the category to emerge Champion overall, despite narrowly placing second in one of the category’s events behind former Champion Randy “Price “Belle and his entry “Wave Runner” in a thrilling race that went to the wire as Randy just managed to stave off a strong finishing Jaguar at the checkered Flag.
The attention now turns to the August12, Lake Mainstay Power Boat Regatta on the Essequibo Coast, where more keen rivalry can be expected.
Easter Regatta 2012 Group One Champion Neil Gonsalves and his Pomeroon team are expected to throw down the gauntlet to the Bartica boys led by the Belles and Dave Scott and others as entertainment is guaranteed for the fans.
