The 5th picture, top row, did he ever make it up the falls?

She was the first woman to climb the falls, and till now, the only one as pilot.

We have called that fall " cascade de Paul " because Paul ( Hibbard ) was the first one ( but not last ) to dive in with his hovercraft. The angle at the lower part is hard to negociate on white waters, very often, nose refuses to climb up the waves and dive under. The lower power record is for Russ with 31 HP. All 25 HP , like I' ve done, are able to join the upper edge ( with a lot of chance ) but , when front skirt merges above flat water, cushion deflates and you are thrown back down the cascade.....gloup !

You do Mr Dougal a disservice Michel - I held the 'Min bhp' record http://hovercraft.org.uk/images/icons/smiley_icons/icon_smile.gif until this year in Workmate with 32bhp (Rotax 377) - Toodly Doogly took it this year with a 31 Briggs.

Just to let you know, I've put the final day of pictures onto Gem's Gallery, sorry for the delay but work since return has been a bit mental!


Congrats to all UK winners!
