All the latest!
Rupert – Ragtime retires in heavy weather on Monday and gets T-boned by a Sigma 38 on Tuesday. Peter Johnson crewing for the day. Wonderman Phil Scott is set to mend broken carbon fibre mast overnight. Yes really.
Ken and Joe – Just made it to the line on time after overnight spreader repair. They failed sadly to take the holding tape off the repair and when they tried to hoist the main it stopped at the spreader…….derrrr. Just got it sorted in time. They were doing pretty well today but a knot on the mainsheet mysteriously came undone which was not a welcome development. There is always tomorrow
Andrew and Andrea – managed a capsize on Monday right in front of the clubhouse, much appreciated by the spectators but not good for their position. Great starts always achieved but follow through can be disappointing.
