For pictures from the race, including some featuring the dolphins, have a look here: http://www.class-1.com/ and click on 'Photos'.

Ta, Dan from Boatmad, for the link!

We Saw the Dolphins, and helped to escort them off the course....a pretty hard job, we handed them over to the fire/rescue boat who had jet drive engines as they like the water pressure and they escorted them towards Cawsands but as soon as the race was started again they came back!!! ....It was great to see them though.

Hey,

Nice job! How do you escort a pod of dolphins? Do they come when you whistle?

Race control told us to get behind them and move slowly out to the west, we had to be pretty careful as it's an offence to follow them apparently!
