Aaron Wins Honda RYA Youth RIB Challenge – Again!

Aaron LowtherSIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD Aaron Lowther, from Canvey Island, has powered his way to the top of the youth power boating field for the second year running after being crowned the 2009 Honda RYA Youth RIB Challenge National Champion at the Championship final held at the PSP Southampton Boat Show on Sunday, 13th September.

Aaron, who also claimed victory at the championship last year, clinched this year’s victory by less than a second — with a time of 1:04:21, ahead of second place rival Luke McGill on 1:04:56.

Aaron represented the Island Yacht Club, as well as the Eastern region, at the final and goes home with a brand new powerboat for his club.

The powerboat is a 4.8 metre Ribcraft RIB with Honda BF50 Outboard, on an Indespension trailer with an Icom 505 VHF radio.

Aaron also won a selection of other goodies, thanks to the event sponsors, which included: a remote control sail boat courtesy of Honda; 100 vouchers from Ribcraft; and 50 vouchers from ICOM — as well as their much deserved winner’s trophies.
