2017 AMPBA National Championships

We spent the last week attending the AMPBA National Championships in a small country town on the NSW/VIC border named Finley. Hosted by the Southern Riverina Model Power Boat Club (SRMPBC), we could not have anticipated a better event!  The SRMPBC committee put on an absolutely outstanding two days of testing and four days of racing.

Attended by model boaters from across Australia, the racing was extremely competitive while the conditions were at times very testing (cold and windy). At the end of the week, more than 180 heats were contested over five complete rounds of racing. We managed to bring home a second in open petrol tunnel and a third in open petrol rigger.
