Following in his father's footsteps, Ben Sallis made his senior racing debut in the OSY.400 hydroplane class.
A pair of heat wins was sufficient for Ray Birnie to gain victory in the Sportsboat series.
We often display rare photo's on this website but this probably tops the lot - Peter Rix racing in a Clubman monohull for the first time - he even managed to complete all 3 heats !
Brian's World Championship Bid
One absentee from Thursday nights race line-up was Brian Block who has travelled to Spain to contest the UIM World HR.850 Championship at Narvis. Brian collected the bronze medal on his previous attempt in 2015. He will be joined on the beach by 3 competitors from Ireland.
This years Drivers' Reunion evening coincided with the 70th birthday of Peter Bright, the British Hydroplane Champion 1981-83. The clubhouse was almost full to capacity for this occasional event - perhaps an annual date should be allocated on the LOBMBC calendar.

A visitor to the clubhouse on Thursday was Malcolm Curtis, who is looking remarkably well following his recent heart attack.
