Sail-World.com : She’s the Culprit & Dean Barrys' victories - Taree

She’s the Culprit & Dean Barrys' victories - Taree

'Dean Barrys’ She’s The Culprit'    Australian Power Boat Asscociation
Sydney driver Dean Barry in She’s the Culprit dominated the major events in Taree Aquatic Power Boat Club’s Easter Classic.

Barry guided She’s the Culprit to wins in the Stuart Doyle Gold Cup, the Eastaway Shield and the Geoff Stevenson Memorial.

He was also second to Brian McCosker’s Liberty in the King of the River. This was some consolation for McCosker who otherwise endured a frustrating weekend of racing.

His boat was plagued by mechanical problems on the opening day of the classic and a team member drove home to Tamworth that night to get parts in an attempt to rectify the problem. McCosker showed just what he is capable of when winning the King of the River in style.

Red Bellies driven by Bruce Sanders finished third in the King of the River.

Barry defeated Truly Wicked (Alan Newton) and Fury (Ryan Chesser) in the Geoff Stevenson Memorial with Fury and The Chase filling the minor placings in the Stuart Doyle Gold Cup.

Madness, driven by Derek Marlon won a new race added to this year’s program, the Lewis Brothers Memorial from Hostage (Alan Micallif) and Trouble.

Alan Newton drove Desperado to victory in the Commodore’s Cup from The Chase and Shakedown while Hi Flya, driven by Greg Lewis took out the Alan Smyth Memorial final from Sensational and Delusional.

Madness (Troy Marland) was too slick in the 5.2 injected final, winning from Flat Knackers, driven by Gladstone’s Robert Benn. Manning driver Jim McFarlane was third in Hobo.

Taree Aquatic Power Boat Club official Murray Carle said more than 60 boats contested the two days of racing. This included entries from Victoria and Queensland.

'We also had 21 juniors, the most we’ve ever had here,’’ Carle said.

The juniors are building up for the Australian titles to be conducted on the Manning the weekend of April 26-27.

Carle said conditions were rough on Saturday but close to perfect for Sunday’s program.

He estimated that crowds were slightly down for the opening day and blamed this on the unpredictable weather. However, the turnout of spectators was on par with previous years on Sunday.
