Final Results: Round 3: 2014 Winter Endurance Series
Final results for the South Island Tour.
Lake Brunner turned on a stunning weekend for the final round of the South Island Winter Endurance Tour (30.8.14).
With picture perfect views and a balmy 16 degree day, 20 riders competed in the event.
First up was the ski race... a 45 minute race with one compulsory fuel stop. 7 riders started... 5 finished. Line honours
went to Mark Bainbridge followed by Daniel Jephson (1st Stock boat home) and David Gerring.
In the Runabout event competitors raced in 2 X 45 minute races. With calm flat water and a large open course it was
always going to be a test to find the fastest reliable boat. Nathan Maclure looked to have it in the bag with his open
seadoo miles faster than the opposition... sadly a stone/prop incident while refuelling coupled with a untimely engine
failure on the last lap ruled him out... but did secure with the ‘Dick of the Tour Trophy’ again!!! Overall honours went
to Chris Farnley with 2nd place getter Cole Askew close behind (also being 1st Stock Boat home). 3rd Place went to
Callum Farnell. 1st Teams entry home was Craig Flewellen and Robin Oakley while Grant Wilson took out Naturally Aspirated.
Following the race events the Canterbury Jet Sports Club hosted a Poker Run. 23 riders on a variety of skis sprinted around
the Lake, figuring out clues as to where the 5 card points were located. Returning with sealed envelopes it was a tense
wait to see who had the best hand. A great night was had in the local Moana Pub followed up in the Dermotts bach untill
the wee hours.
