Sail-World.com : Coniston Powerboat Records Week concludes

Coniston Powerboat Records Week concludes

'Coniston Powerboat Records Week 2011'   
Coniston Powerboat Records Week has come to a close with what has been an action packed week in which 191 records attempts were made in Cumbria between the 31st October and the 4th November.

At the end of the week six World and sixteen National records have been submitted for approval, with records being set and broken some 46 times during the week.

To finish off the week eleven year old powerboating ace Ben Jelf was once more back out on the water and managed to improve on his world record time set the day before in the GT15 class and improve his time to 43.11mph, while Scott Collings clinched a new national record in the class 3C 2 litre EPA at 91.42mph.

In the GT30 class the 2010 ratified world record held by Marius Fredriksen at 56.46mph was pipped by Ben Morse when he put in a time of 56.73mph. Ben’s time has been put forward for ratification for a new RYA National Speed record but his claim to a new World record will depend upon the ratification of the 2011 time of Douglas Matton of 56.86mph set back in October in Sweden.

Richard Solomon Officer of the day commented: 'The 41st records week has been a great success, we’ve been blessed by the weather and had some good record times set. It has been fantastic to see a great turnout in terms of competitors and spectators, with several new faces out on the water.

'The event is made even more special by the unity of the powerboat racing disciplines both on and off the water, and dedication of the officials and safety team that work tirelessly throughout the week.'

RYA Powerboat Racing Officer Nicola Drummond commented: 'It’s been a delight to be able to share the excitement of the week with all the competitors. There have been some fantastic achievements and some incredible records set. It will be exciting to see just what these guys can achieve next year.'

(All results are unofficial and subject to ratification).
