Alappuzha, Nov 10: With the prospect of scoring a third hat-trick, Tropical Titans emerged victorious at Race 10 of the Champions Boat League (CBL) here.
The evening’s winners, with a timing of 4:39.76 along the 900-metre track at the Kayamkulam backwaters, surged further up the points position at 143, taking an unassailable lead after the 10th round of the pioneering water event modelled on IPL cricket held on Saturday.
The final race saw a photo-finish for the first and second runners-up, with Coast Dominators coming second by clocking 5:17.17 and Raging Rowers (5:17.60) ending third.
Tropical Titans yet again became the ‘Nerolac Excel Fastest Team of the Day’ with the best timing of 4:26.90 during the heats.
The team, owned by Pallathuruthy Sports Club, has so far lost only the fifth round of the three-month CBL at Kochi, where Coast Dominators came a surprise first on October 5. (UNI)
