Saturday 3rd May - Closing Day


We had a great turn out for the closing day racing with nine boats entering - a pity that Mother nature did not join in by giving the fleet some more wind!!  

It was a mark foy start with Isis start on -10 minutes, followed by Che  on 0 and so on with Young Entertaining starting last!  Some of the boats did not have great starts.. but used their time to perform good deeds such as pulling boats Kentucky Woman off the mud and photographing the fleet slowly sail past. 

It was a frustrating day on the water however the Big Blue boat (who retired when they noticed that the tide was taking them backwards) did her best to keep the other boats entertained!!!

Unfortunately only four of the nine boats managed to finish.  Well done to Blue Beat won the race, followed by Firsty, Nona and Eye Spy.
