With a black sky and thunder & lightning there was doubt as to whether the race would be held. But the storm missed Bass and twelve boats lined up for the start.
Sue & Alan picked up the port bias and were first away. Glenys & Nigel were not so lucky and capsized on the line. Some wag reckoned they needed to cool off on the hottest day of the year!
Mike’s Streaker was first round the windward mark with Peter’s Laser just astern, the helm wishing for a bit more wind. Then it was Sue / Alan and Ken / Val with Mike’s Solo close astern. Further back was John in his Pico hanging out as if is life (or stability at least) depended on it!
James and Andrew Reekie in their Oppys were shortened first and then Dave Eva’s Vision, Robert Hedges’ Ent and Barbara Thompson’s Laser all in close company.
After which back in for the meal which was, again, prepared by James & Jenny.
