Superboat champ left high and dry at World event

9:46 am on 23 December 2008

The two-times world and five-time New Zealand superboat champion Peter Caughey may be left high and dry when the 2009 world championship starts at Meremere on January 3.

Caughey has an international reputation for his world-beating speed and his world-class Sprintec boats , which 14 drivers will race in Group A and superboat jetsprint classes.

But the Canterbury racer and boat builder is still looking for a naming sponsor.

He's $15,000 short and says without it his rapid new boat will have to stay in the shed.
