Justin Waples wins Grafham in Bright Sparks

»«Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th April 2010

Justin Waples enjoyed a satisfactory weekend over the 17th & 18th April. He launched his new Flying Fifteen Bright Sparks on the Saturday and, together with his crew Ian Stowe, went on to win the Flying Fifteen Open Meeting at Grafham Water on the Sunday - that's champagne two days running!

It was a close finish; Bright Sparks ended in the winning position only after a 'count back' as Justin and Iain tied in first place with Greg Wells & Mark Darling each with a first, second and third place.

Although Justin is a member of many years standing at the Corinthian, his choice of boat means that he would find it difficult to race on the Crouch. He is more usually seen standing waist deep in the river, launching Oppies during Otter Week.

Our Congratulations to him and his crew!
