Aussie Champs

Mornington based marine dealer Wes Frost from Wes Frost Marine and his eldest son Caleb 13yo recently competed in and won their respective classes at the 2011 Just Spa's Australian Drag Boat National Titles held at the National Water Sports Centre in Patterson Lakes last weekend (march 20th).

Wes drives a 1650 bullet with a modified 2.0ltr Mercury engine and capable of speeds up to 95 MPH, Caleb runs a junior wing boat powered by a 15hp Mercury and is capable of speeds up to 45MPH.

Both Wes and Caleb also last month competed in the Victorian drag titles at the nwsc @Patterson lakes and finished (Wes -runners up and Caleb won the juniors).

The VDBC (Victorian drag boat club) held the Aussie Titles and were thrilled to see a father and son compete and win on the same day, we are still checking our record books to see if we have ever had a father and son win aussie titles on the same day.

It was great to see Caleb confirm his Vic title defence and win the aussie titles for the juniors. It's great fun for the kids 12-and up to be able to learn and race a boat under a controlled environment, Caleb's a smart and level headed driver and knows his limitations, Caleb has done very well in short period of time and obviously dad keeps a close watch on what's he's doing.

Kids like Caleb are the future of our boat racing and encourage all keen juniors to get involved said VDBC spokesperson.

It was a lot of pressure for Wes as Caleb had won during the day and Wes had to come through the heats and make the finals and win.

The family are members of the Victorian Outboard Club and compete in the circuit racing around Victoria and are currently doing very well in the points system.

Next month the boys will be off to Lake Nagambie near Seymour for the Australian Powerboat Circuit Titles. Good Luck!
