|GBR 2018 Travellers Series - Schooling takes the title from an ever growing fleet.
Featuring the contenders:
Ben ‘Benjo’ Schooling, Dan ‘Vincenzo’ Vincent, Andy ‘Turbo’ Tarboton, Jono ‘Northern’ Shelley
The number of travellers has been growing at a impressivly fast rate with interested travellers acquiring boats from all manner of people and places. The strength of the fleet also seems to be climbing through the roof year on year. The circuit has seen as many as 90 different competitors taking part at the various events.
The competition was so close that the final 4 contenders overall placings were decided at the final event at Grafham, and the top 3 only decided on the final leg of the final race!!
Northern felt the pressure getting to him and decided discretion being the better part of valour, Turbo put up a valiant late charge and then clutched defeat from the jaws of victory which left Vincenzo and Benjo to fight it out down the final run. Benjo’s downwind tekkers were impressive and Vincenzo could only watch from Benjo’s wake as he sealed the victory in fine style.
So, as it finished, Ben Schooling takes the chocolates for a fantastic 2018 season from Dan Vincent by a mere 2 points with Andy Tarboton a further 4 points back – closer than a shave at a barber.
Let’s hope 2019 brings more thrills and excitement to keep us on the edge of our seats. The series has taken us to some lovely new venues and returned us to some favourites too – a credit to those who put so much effort into organising the circuit year on year.
