David Selley closes in on double title

David Selley stepped up the hunt for an impressive double at the weekend.

Having already clinched A class honours in the Rubis Around the Island Power Boat and Jet Ski Race last month, Selley surged to the top of the standings in the season championship series during the penultimate race day of the 2021 campaign at Ferry Reach on Sunday.

Selley competed uncontested and without a co-pilot to secure maximum points and move to the top of the pecking order, where he has a 20-point advantage over sole rivals Shane Maderios and Errin Butterfield heading into the September 26 season finale.

Shawn Butterfield and co-pilot Jermal Woolridge, who have already sewn up the season series in the D class, romped to their fourth win of the campaign.

Daric Seymour and co-pilot Shaki Easton took the chequered flag in the S class.

The pair trail leaders Henry Talbot and Andrew Cottingham by 100 points with one race to go.

Talbot and Cottingham need only to finish the final race of the season to clinch the title.

Bobby DeCosta and co-pilot Justin Lindo were victorious in the B class after sole rivals and Around the Island Race B class winners Mark Selley and Jordan Fletcher did not finish.

Quincé Dowling and co-pilot Tai Bean top the B class standings by ten points over nearest rivals Ryan Resendes and co-pilot Bryan Correia, and Jody and Tony Carreiro.

No entries competed in the C class where Chad Sutherland and co-pilot Graham Sutherland have a ten-point advantage over Lee Wilson and Callum Cunningham at the top of the standings.

Santiago Roe picked up another win to maintain pole position in the Junior class.

Roe holds an 88-point advantage over Juaza James at the top of the standing, with Isabel Roe another 12 points off the pace in third.

Dakari White recorded a sweep of victories in the two jet-ski races held to keep his championship bid firmly on track.

The Bermuda Personal Watercraft Association president has a 104-point advantage at the top of the standings over Jahlae Raynor. Matthew Smith sits in third, a further 68 points off the lead.
