Twilight: Wednesday 13th
40 boats took part last week and under the control of our volunteers Richard Ferguson (RO), Greg Blackwood, Roger Byrne & Terry Hart they were sent around course 19. The wind dropped out for a while and a good number chose to retire. Those that stuck it out all made it back in plenty of time.
