With just over 24 hours till the 2nd Annual 2011 Pittwater Hydro Derby Summer Invitational the atmosphere is electric!
Teams have been scrambling to optimize their Hydro strategies, with a spate of last minute crew trading, as they look to maximize their ‘angling quotient’ and most critically the potential ‘standards per tonne’ ratings. At this late stage most teams look to be favouring the ‘standards per tonne’ approach, looking to geometrically kick their scores onto the podium… whilst there are rumors surfacing of what some competitors are calling “The Whitebait Approach“, will we see the first gill net deployed in Hydro Derby History?
With the unfortunate assassination of the Crazy Mexicans whilst waiting for their flight at Benito Juarez Airport the Hydro Arena will be focused on the two remaining power teams boasting six particpants… Team GOUT and the alarmingly prim Team STEPFORDS to lead the charge towards epic consumption. Recent word has the STEPFORDS engaging the services of a sub-50kg skipper as they look to massage their ratios… in true form Team GOUT will be running with a 100kg whopper at the helm… will this be the deciding factor?
Snapping at these behemoths heals will be Team Zissou, Team RAMROD, TTTT and Team Legio XIII Ebrius Maximus all sporting more nimble numbers and each being led by a Hydro Derby veteran there Derby hardened skills will be hard to discount.
Who will hoist the Pittwater Perpetual Pail in victory?
