Have your say

A TEENAGER is powering his way to success after making a splash at a boating grand prix.

Jordan Muckles, 17, has been taking part in the 2013 Powerboat British Championship which kicked off with the Lancashire Grand Prix last weekend.

A record crowd watched as Sunderland’s star speedboat performer established an astonishing lead in his new GT30 boat.

Jordan, who lives with his family in Fulwell, began his association with racing boats in 2007. In 2010 he was RYA North East Young Sailor of the Year.
