Coleman’s Content with Solid Silver Start
Reining World & National Powerboat P1 Champions settled for a solid silver medal in this weekend’s UK season opener. The Aalborg Regatta, Denmark hosted some fantastic heat racing with over 70k spectators enjoying the weekend festival. Sam & Daisy Coleman qualified 2nd, pipped by just four tenths of a second to pole position by current USA Champions and fellow Welshmen; James Norvill & Christian Parsons-Young. Sam & Daisy won both of their heat races on the Saturday setting the stage for a straight showdown between the UK and USA Champions in Sunday’s Grand Finale.
Ultimately with the teams so evenly matched it was pole position which enabled the USA Champs to make it first to the first turn mark. With a tight course and flat water James & Christian drove faultlessly leaving no opportunity for the hard charging Coleman Racing to take the win.
Solid Start to The Season
With a solid start to the season, the real icing on the cake for the weekend was a fantastic debut for the Milford Waterfront backed team of Andrew Foster & Charles Morris in the ‘Pembrokeshire Panther’ who completed the welsh takeover of this weekend grand final podium.
The next round takes the teams to Greenock for the Scottish leg of the tour in only 2 weeks time before they head to home waters in the P1 Welsh Grand Prix of the Sea, Milford Haven over the 15th – 16th July.
