Round 3 18th March 2012
The turn out for the Diamond Cup was down on numbers but the weather was excellent. Sun was shinning and no wind. The normal lake at Waitara that we normally run on was full of weed so we used the back-up venue at LakeRotomanu. We did have to contend with the odd wave set up by the ski boats further up the lake but in all we had a great time. Paul won the Classic Petrol Hydro, Phil won the 1/8th FE hydro and John took out both the Scale45 and Nitro 1/8th Scale Hydro races.
The Hi-Points for 1/8th will now be a nail bitter with 4 boats within 400 points of each other so lookout Seafair, the fight will be on!
Thanks to the Taranaki Guys for putting on a good show and below are photos taken by Brian Dougan.
Video at the end was taken by Jason and John and whoever else picked up the camera to shot some video………
