Thundercats Are Go!


Thundercat Racing is a fairly new and growing boat race series originally created in South Africa and now with clubs world-wide. With a two man crew these lightweight boats can reach quite high speeds, designed for inshore racing they perform most spectacularly in surf.

This one is demonstrating the capabilities in Salthouse Dock during the Liverpool Pageant of Power.

Excellent action picture. I hope you hooked them with the long lens, otherwise you have to get out of the way quickly smile
Les Auld: They were about fifteen metres away but about four metres below me, they just missed the side of the dock. Thanks for the comment Louis.
