Pickle penalised in Round the Island Race

Jeremy and Max Vines thought they had won Division 5C sailing Pickle, their Dufour 34 (GBR 9585T), with an all family crew, in the Island Sailing Club’s annual race round the Isle of Wight on Saturday 1 July. However, they were given a 24 minute penalty for being marginally over the line at the start and instead of being second in Group 5 with an elapsed time of 08.25.42 they dropped to sixth. Pickle was 51st overall in a fleet of more than 1340 boats.

    Well sailed, Jeremy and Max and family,
    from the Tammy gang at Salcombe.

    Hard luck Jeremy. Your 10 crewmembers were just a jot too eager.
