Thanks to Lorraine for being our starter on Sunday, and for judging the best start. The spot prize went to Cut Lunch. A blustery northerly brought out only those 4 who had a chance at a series result. First on line and on handicap went to Kantime, 2nd Cut Lunch and 3rd to Frantic. Hogwarts Express, the series leader prior to this race, came 4th .
Hogwarts Express also took out the paddle. Having accelerated to breath taking speed in a gust, when running down from the Northern Channels, quick thinking came up with a cruising approach of running out a sea anchor. Not having one immediately available, they threw Andy over, who they had borrowed from Frivolous Fish, and dragged him by his feet, until the gust passed. This novel method however, is not an approved E59 safety procedure, and they were duly awarded the paddle.
The series results are 1st Cut Lunch, 2nd Hogwarts Express and 3rd Frantic.
