DeCosta and Wells win Round the Island race

Bobby DeCosta and Chris Wells were all smiles yesterday after winning the Round the Island powerboat race to take line honours in their D-13 boat.

Graeme Sutherland and McNeil Wilson in the D-25 boat came second, while Tonka Simpson and Seth Chetty, in FB-55, rounded out the top three in the same spot they finished last year.

For DeCosta it was his first win in the annual spectacle, while co-pilot Wells claimed his second title after teaming up with Sutherland in 2008 in the same winning boat this year.
