Old Salts in Little Boats Race
10 June 2018 – start time 2.30pm
The ‘Old Salts’ in the club have been invited to each skipper a Hunter 19 in a race to find out who can live without winches, fancy fittings and other big boat luxuries, to use only old age and cunning, to outwit and out sail each other, to cross the finish line first, in a little boat!
A draw will be held in the bar at 1.30pm to match each Old Salt to a Hunter 19, which will be crewed either by the owner of the Hunter, or the regular crew. The rest of the crews from the handicap keel boats and Hunters will be encouraged to hi-jack a few of the boats left behind and become spectators, in the bay. A special prize giving will be held back in the club afterwards.
