Very kindly Pat from SF offers us his new recruit for Yato for some intensive training, Yato is pleased at the opportunity, after briefing Yato on the dehydrating policy’s of AOE, he is warmly welcomed aboard with an icy cold initiation ale
Rigged for light air, we challenge the start, it is such a heart breaking shame when we see our friend’s on LOEG get called back for breaking the start.
As we sail down Abbotsford Bay, Still Festering takes the lead, a lonely space that he retains for the entire race. We sail a fantastic close race with LOEG with the two boats changing positions 6 times during the race.
As we round mark 3 we notice the shorten course sign is out, LOEG are on our tail and sailing fast to the finish. Congratulations boys on a well earned 2nd place, AOE 3rd and Black Velvet finishing 4th.
Handicap positions are AOE, Sill Festering, Sand baggers LOEG & Black Velvet.
Hoping Steve comes back next week, and a big thank you for all Yato did for us today.
