The next generation of powerboat racers!

Richard Carr knows what it takes to become a professional powerboat racer and this week was delighted to read about one of the next generation of racers, Jamie Paterson (pictured above right).

10 year old Champion

Former British Champion Richard Carr has been involved in boating throughout his life. At the age of seven, he learned how to sail a mirror dinghy, but didn’t enter the world of powerboating until he was 25.

Last month a young scot named Jamie Paterson (10) hit the headlines after his high-speed exploits helped him become a British Champion.

The primary school pupil handled the conditions best on the seas just of England’s south coast to sail to victory in the National Youth RIB Championships for his age group.

Youngsters to benefit from Jamie’s achievement

Jamie’s exploits not only earned him a gold model, but also landed a brand new £4,000 boat for the Findhorn Marina Club, where he trains.

The youngsters boat, a Honda-powered RIB (Rigid-hullud Inflatable Boat), which he used to win the championship in, will now be used to teach other young sailors at the RYA (Roya Yachting Association) training centre based at the Moray port’s bay.

“It felt absolutely crazy because I was really shocked. I didn’t think I would win,” said Jamie. “Winning the medal was great, but finding out I had won the boat as well was amazing.

“I had to do a presentation thing at school where I got a big cheer. My friends were happy for me, and they sometimes come out in the boats with me, so that makes me popular.”

Great to see participation of youngsters

Richard Carr believes that it is excellent for the sport that youngsters are taking an interests in it and competing at a young age. Although Jamie may never go onto compete in powerboats, he will no doubt have inspired the young generation.

Having competed in the sport, Richard knows how fulfilling it is, and hopes that more youngsters take an interest and hit the waters.
