Anne of Craicor and Makana Confections Race 10
A largely uneventful race, fortunately for our starter Rob. Although a couple of boats over at the start had Cut Lunch playing catch up, but they recovered well. However, the night went to Hogwarts Express who sprinted off the start line to take 1st, with 2nd to Jagged Edge and 3rd to Kantime.
Only one race remains in this series. It could be a Frantic race to hold on to first spot. However, the Nexus crew will have studied the sailing instructions fine print and realised it’s not all over, as the 2nd discard will take effect in the final race. The big unknown is 3rd spot, as only 1 point separates the next 3 boats. If Overdraft and Kantime miss the bus, they may find they are beaten to their destination by the Hogwarts Express.
Ashby’s Boatyard Series Race 9
B Division had Frantic 1st, Cut Lunch 2nd and the Whangarei boys on Elliott Gobble-it 3rd.
C Division had Cats Paw 1st over Saltshaker 2nd and Casco 3rd. The paddle went to Jagged Edge for heading off to Caters mark instead of Cable as they lead around the NSR Mark. However, picking up the Ashby’s Boatyard lucky lift out draw would have cheered them up.
Thanks again Ashby’s Boatyard and to Mona and Paul, our starters.
Road Runner Tavern Race 10
Jagged Edge 1st , Cut Lunch 2nd and Kantime 3rd. Kantime looks a little unstoppable for the series, but Casco, Nexus and Orange Peeler have a chance to fight it out for the minor placing in the last race.
