Round Shuna Race

Sunday dawned rather damply with a F3/4 from the West. Six Serpent boats joined battle on the start line at 11.00am.
Almost immediately, Troikka disappeared over the horizon showing the rest of the fleet a clean pair of heels to take line honours. This despite Charles flying his cruising sails, clearly offset by having the Hannah's aboard as hotshot crew.

A tussle which developed between Seamus Lalor on Emma Louise and Stewart Toy on Out of the Blue involved much luffing and resolved in favour of the smaller boat. Stewart had the consolation of beating his long time rival Black Pepper which, together with Tango Too was serenely passed by Martyn Webster, Arup Ray and Tony Adgent on the elegant Shona, which went on to win the race.
