Took Seahawk 2 to Brighton with Graham and his brother and a friend of mine called Ken. Met up with Steve and a few other guys from Pontoontalk. The weather in the morning was not so bad but about mid day got quite rough so we decided to watch the race from the beach.
Sorry to have missed you John cos we also talked to Jan. Beach house number noted. Exciting race but the boats were quite spread out . Jan had to finish the last lap on one engine. One boat caught fire just west of the Brighton pier
Don't know what caused the fire and hope the guys were ok. The black smoke could be seen from a distance . Can anyone fill in this gap

By the afternoon the sea got very rough so our return trip to Littlehampton was delayed awaitng better conditions. It took us just over an hour to get back and the sea was quite rough

More photos can be see on www.pontoontalk.co.uk/forums
