Its been a busy week for the Thundercats. As you all know last week we had some voclanic ash and it stranded a few people, well we had a couple of stranded Honeymooners and some Airline Staff come to Ardmore to Fly ‘Air Thundercat’!! We don’t have to worry about some ash in the clouds, all we need is a few little waves and a 50hp Thundercat and we are always cleared for take off. All passengers disembarked safetly with large smiles and arrived at there chosen destination.
This weekend saw the Round 1 of the Irish National P750/ Thundercat championships. It was a 60 nm race (over 120km) long haul race around Brandon Bay in very messy choppy (ploughed field springs to mind) conditions. 6 Boats lined up for the race, and I’m proud to say I was 1st off the beach by along shot. On the 1st lap my engine decided it was not in the mood for a race! After losing the lead and limping back to the start, a quick change of boat and we were back out again. We (Ronan & Mike) were lapping 3min faster than the rest of the field. On the 5th lap after coming from way back in last position to reach 2nd, our engine decided it want a rest.
To cut along story short after alot of cursing and engine striping (while afloat), we got back in the race and finished 3rd.
Thanks to Mike for crewing for me, it was his 1st ever time in a Thundercat and he did fantastic in the challenging conditions. I’ve attached the link for the photos Peter took on the day.Click Here to view photos. We were in the white/orange boat and then the white boat.
