Well, despite the forecasts being for the breeze to drop, it didn't! Low 30s gusting up to mid 40s.
Only 6 boats brave (or silly) enough to start, all finished ok, no issues that I am aware of.
Much smaller party than previously, due to low numbers I guess. We counted about 80 in the clubrooms.
Thx to Mt Gay Rum, our prize sponsors.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Thanks for the fun Matt! And the rum...


Re: Cam's post earlier - as the sole boat on the long course - the sea state was bigger on the other side of Bean Rock and it got exciting in the shallows around Motokorea Buoy, but nothing to get worked up about if you're not normally a rum racer!  Solid 30's with the odd gust. The cruising sails got a spanking!
