The Cowes Race was our only endurance race of the season. The start was a shambles, with pleasure boats in the start muster area as well as the very quick wham bam thank mam start with many of the boats not even having the opportunity to line up. Unfortunately this left us almost 200 metres behind… and the race to the first turn buoy was hard work. The sea was choppy and we were fighting all the way through, crashing through every wave. Fortunately the whole race wasn’t like this because it would have been 40 mins of hell otherwise!

We made it back with the boat in one piece… finishing 6th.
