Did Bridget wet her pants write her speech? Well it was needed, because we did it – after a nerve wracking final two hours (from the remoteness of the website!), in which Bolton kept closing the gap, we won the 24 hour race for the 2nd time with several minutes to spare.
Well done to all our team, and their managers and supporters on an excellent job well done.
The sponsorship from Lloyds Motors of Cockermouth is greatly appreciated. If they can provide us with a boat next year (or a suit of sails will do), so much the better!!!
It’s a tough trophy to defend, but I’m sure we’ll be there again next year.
A message from the competition:
Well done Bass. Whatever dance you did to get the wind back in the last hour certainly worked!! Also, how much did you pay the larks off to drop the protest?? Seriously though, it was a cracking finish and well done to Phil for keeping it together…. just.
All the best from Dale and the lads and lasses at Bolton SC.
