A new year, another Championship Race


       
                                           
                                                               So ... here we all were ....

 
ready for action..



                                                                  flexing muscle...
                                                                                         

                                                                eye catching colours


                                ...........  but are the crew checking out  'What's What!'

                                                       or is that the famous " mystery bolt " ????


                                              Not to worry ... everything seems to be working ....


                                            Solitaire was cruising alone quietly ... like a predator!


                                On a Sonofabeach ....it was more beachy,  summer casual..


                                      Now .. can someone teach Pete how to check the blog ..


                                                              The Pocket Rocket was primed


                                                             round and round we go..

                                                                            
   
                                                                  It that Dr Seuss??

The start looked exciting ,


The pocket, rocket got away..


until the mighty 'beach got underway..



 
everyone took a different tack...

 
and a different angle..

 
Miss Behaviour was playing it late ..

 
solitaire threw out some ballast..



 across the harbour

 some people were a little nervous


 Craig was having his first skipper experience ...



 
Tim seemed to pop up all over the course


there was plenty of ORANGE


Morgan and Steve were a well oiled team....



 \
Of course .. it's good to see the girls in charge....



Let's not get too stressed  about it all..



those impulse Sailors! They're incorrigible !


Cheeky!

 
Race 1... done and dusted !
 
 
Race 2 underway..
 

Yes...That way Tim!



Martin and Matt . a champion team!

 
 
Impulse sailors skate downhill..




playing in the waves ..




Maria was after those guys...



and she was determined ...





Standing up makes you go faster .....

 
 
Tim was chasing his mates...




Busy Herc was buzzing around ..


Will sailed home after a day in the RIB as a handy gofer...


and there is always a lesson it in from Martin...  no free rides here !


 
.. and a simple sail homewards to end the day !
