Thanks to RBC turning out to make up the 3 boats for a scored race. The crews from Nexus and Frivolous Fish were sitting in OCC club rooms with Ian OOD, pondering what might have been if a 3rd boat showed up to race … when out of the mist and rain emerged the Russell Boating Club representative Caprice.
Ian realigned the start line, and a little after the scheduled start time, it was race on. Congratulations to Caprice for a well deserved 1st.. . The Wet & Forget 1St prize “Miss Moffat’s Revenge” is in the mail. 2nd to Nexus, 3rd Frivolous Fish.
The post match discussion agreed that Caprice had sailed to Russell and back 3 times versus the 2 times for the rest of the fleet, but all had to admit it was a well deserved result, leaving the series wide open with 4 races remaining.
