Old Salts Race … everyone survived!
Sunday 10th June turned out to be a perfect day for holding the inaugural ‘Old Salts in Little Boats’ race at HBYC. Eight Hunter owners made their boats available, many acting as crew as well. The ‘Old Salts’ (think broadest definition of the term), were paired with their crews through drawing names out of a hat in the club beforehand. With up to 10 knots of breeze at times the ‘Salts’ battled it out, using old age and cunning, to claw their way up the fleet. Back in the HBYC clubhouse, the race was re-lived with more talk of sore backs and knee operations, than actual sailing tactics! Do they want to do it again next year? Hell yes! 🙂
