This is Sunbeam, a local smack, taken just before the race started.
These two hardened sailors are also members of the race committee. We even feed them and water them!!
Another local smack, Charlotte Ellen, had their launching party back at the hard. Free beer and champagne, accompanied by a jazz band was a perfect end to the race. Back to the club and even more beer, food and music til late at night. Well done to all sailors and helpers.
Not sure about the hangover the next day though!!!!
