Bermuda round the island race

Postby Michael » Thu Jun 11, 2015 6:08 pm

Well we had sign up last night and so far 88 boats have signed up, which is a record number. Amazing really for such a small island.
Now if we can just break the magical number of 100... which I am sure we will do in the next year or 2

Have Oracle put a team in for this year or are they planning to do the race next year? Looks like they've spent a lot of money on a hot 170 engine.

A big thanks to Mr. Large for coming down and blessing us all with his grace, his wisdom, his stunning good looks - just his general all round presence, really. It was good to see you, as always. Hope you had enough fun to make it worthwhile - and we'll catch you sooner rather than later... "Like a bad rash". We'll take good care of your boat for you... 8)

Great pictures.

The Chucky crew looks a bit on the heavy side, how did they do?

This is me finishing between 3.05 & 3.30 in the blue & white Seagull T shirt in the plywood coloured boat more than an hour behind our expected return.

I was amazed to see one of your engines still running after an hour. Well done. Just got to finish a race in NZ one day
