Boxing Day race

Daddsie 6:41pm, 28 December 2011
Scrubbed bottom of boat, checked rig tension, bought a new No.2, had two team GBR coaches on board plus top crew.

Nothing could go wrong.

The night before I could only dream of glory.

A great start after a general recall, lots of testosterone about!

After 2 hours entered the river mouth on a falling spring tide, can see the leaders, as one of the slowest boats I'm in with a very good shout, I can almost hear the champagne corks popping, wife says "shall I put on the depth sounder" I dismiss her stupidity.

Moments later as the rest of the fleet passes, a certain 9m is trying to get off a mud bank..................................

Ah well, there is always next year.

Finished 13th out of 20 starters.
