At the day 3 prize giving the winning team in the best Crew Disguise from last night’s Fancy Dress Pasta Party was announced. For an absolutely superb interpretation of their boat name (which means flight in French), the winners were….. the crew of Envol! Their prize was a set of handy reusable Klean & Kanteen water bottles.
So sorry we don’t have the results for you yet. There was a technical hitch with the results of race six and that impacts the overalls too. It is being worked on right now so we hope to have results for you soon.
In the meantime here are a few pictures to keep you entertained while you wait.
Sorry this video interview is so late but we have a slow internet connection and we’re struggling to get things posted a wee bit. But better late than never here is last night’s chat with John Hicks of Rampage:
A fab race in glorious sun and cracking breeze. Checkmate was first home by a few boat lengths and was followed in by a gaggle of overlapped boats led by Per Elisa, then Superhero, General Tapioca and Red Cloud. Rampage was fifth home and Waverider sixth. Will have all the corrected results after the daily prize giving.
Checkmate, Per Elisa, Superhero, Red cloud
Race 6 is to be another windward Leeward. The breeze is now up to around 10-12 knots and the sun is even making a break through bid! The first attempt to start saw everyone bunching at the pin end with a general recall. All except Per Elisa who pottered in on her lonesome at the committee boat end. For attempt no 2 they are using Flag Uniform.
Superhero wins by what must have been two and a half mins plus. Per Elisa just second, Harmony and Checkmate neck and neck then Red Cloud and Ballerine.
Superhero may be launched into the stratosphere but behind her Per Elisa is just holding off Harmony and Checkmate who are going at it hammer and tongs. Ballerine still fifth, Red Cloud sixth, Rampage seventh.
I think it’s safe to say that Superhero must have hit the hyperspace button up the first beat as they lead by a huge distance. Second to round was Per Elisa just ahead of Harmony with Checkmate fourth and Ballerine fifth. Rampage, Waverider and Red Cloud followed them round. Wind still light at around 6-7 knots and no sign of the sun yet but the racing is great.
Race five is underway and a fairly scrappy start of was too with the tide building the boats back and a big fight fight for the committee boat end which General Tapioca lost. Father Bruin ended up well and truly OCS and had to go back.
