We had a great start and were in the lead of the RIB and Class III fleets after the first turn, by the end of the first lap we had a reasonable lead, so we backed off a bit and kept the lead as constant as we could, Unfortunately we broke a part of the saddle and had to limp round to get a finish for the championship points and the result is what you see above. Not the best result we could have hoped for but it shows that we are still the quickest boat in the rough so long as we don't break anything!

Amazing how things / attitudes have changed - because it was not that rough. To be honest I would not have even called it a rough race, choppy sure, challenging probably.
