That looks like an absolute blast to me. I'd do it in a hearbeat!

The driver has it easy!! It's the passenger that's doing all the work. I guess in this case it might be an advantage to have a good beer belly for more bow weight in the corners..NUTS who needs a good throttle man when you have a gymnastic bow man.

And the adrenaline rush.

Looks like a young man's event. Like the old saying regarding airplane pilots---there are old boat drivers and there are bold boat drivers but there are no old, bold boat drivers.

How does the saying go, to be old and wise you first have to be young and stupid. Looks like fun though, and everything sounds much cooler when described using an Australian accent. There are crocs in them waters - wouldn't want to get thrown out.

When they say "Dinghy Derby" could just as easily be "Dingy derby" after seeing the sanity of these folks. Cool to watch, but you gotta be more than a little nuts to participate.
