2015 2015: Sheppey Open Cherub, 1st place

Weston open - 6th

Lord birkett - 1st Cherub

9th in the 2015 Nationals mumbles issuing two races due to a broken rudder.

2016 Major upgrades being: July, Jib track backing plate to allow stopper pins to be used. December, after a trip to the isle of wight, Shiny came back with a LONG board and a new case to suit, as well as a infill plate to resort to the shot board.

8th at 2016 nationals, Missed too many races to silly things happening (gudgeon bush fell out kite launch block fell out.)

2017: With the new board and a few new mains (again, thank you Mr Trim) the new season looks bright for one of the oldest cherubs still doing the circuit. Jamie has a project boom on the way. More to follow.
