Lewiston leg of the World Jet Boat Race


Driver Mark Cromie and his Navigator Richard Naunder piloting the boat “The General” and I do mean piloting as their boat hit a large wave in windy conditions on the Lewiston Leg of the race. Their boat was launched completely up in the air in a vertical position and then touched down tail first.  After reentry, they and their boat went under a wave and were completely submerge.  They went from a screaming eagle across the water to a rocket and then a submarine in a matter of seconds.  We are happy that this team didn’t sustain any injuries, unfortunately this cannot be said of the “The General” who sustained damage.  Go to facebook and see the entire event taken by photographer Mark Sharley, the photos are spectacular.
