New Zealand Superboat Profloors wiped the floor with the rest of the competitors over the course of the two day event in Townsville on the week-end. A friend and I watched the race on Saturday from the C Bar on The Strand waterfront – the boats and the attendant helicopters providing a high octane accompaniment to the Tyrells Dry White, Mussels in Chilli Tomato Sauce and Crispy Duck Salad. I did manage to squeeze off a few shots in amongst the chatter.

As if the weather gods knew that it was Superboat Saturday, they turned on Superb Conditions.
Spectator boats moored – anticipating the action.
I held my breath at manoeuvres the helicopters performed following the race.
There is the spray, but where is the boat?
Possibly the Winner…
