Ribnobbers take on the yachties

Martin (Ashley D) kindly left me in charge of Scooby for the day whilst he & Rob M took part in the Round the Island Race. How difficult could that be? How long would it take? Rather a long time, as it happened.

Here is the abridged story of a very long day!

Our heroes make a scortching start

That looks like a Westerly STORM, not living up to its name.

A chum of mine finished at 21:50. How does that compare?

Naa, it was still saturday when he finished.

There is a time limit and anyone who crossed the finish line at 10:00.01 or later had done the whole thing for nothing.

Hi Mark,

I think it is a Westerly Tempest.

Unfortunately they got to the line at about 22.20.
