Perhaps it was news of the wild weather conditions of the previous ladies race that encouraged the largest fleet of the series so far. We had 10 boats racing to the Cater Marine mark.
The male crew on Frantic made use of the better conditions to trial the sideways spinnaker set. It was a very brief and successful test. But they were spotted and Frantic was duly awarded the paddle.
They also took out 1st prize, 2nd Nexus and 3rd Cut Lunch.
Thanks to our sponsors and to Paul Braun our starter. With a computer breakdown Paul and Rob managed to successfully diagnose the problem, reconnect loose wires and have it rebuilt in time for the finish. Well done!
