Photo finish

Calstar, crossing the finish line between Battery Point and Newcombe Buoy at the end of the Holms Race last Saturday. I take lots of pictures of boats, and lots of pictures from our boat, but it's a rare and quite lovely treat to see a photo of our boat with us actually sailing her.

There has been an update to the results, adding two boats not originally included (due to an admin problem with the entry forms I believe) with resulting changes in the top three positions. This also has the effect of pushing us down to 23rd place. I'm not bitter, especially as the revised results put a 23' Hunter Sonata called "Fantasy" now in to 1st. She was helmed by Tom Sully, a youngster from Thornbury Sailing Club who used to sail at Frampton on occasion.

The BCYA Facebook Page gives a great summary of the race, and I quote directly; "This year's race took place in winds of 15-20 knots gusting up to 25 knots meaning over 30 knots over the deck on the beat. 69 yachts registered to start and 41 completed the race "
