Fowey classics pics day 3

Bit of swell from SW made life up front a bit damper but don't mind that. Overall didn't feel it was our best effort, but will have to see what corrected times are. Our rivals on Mikado, a lovely Clyde Linear 30 from 1904, sailed a little ahead of us all the way round which was a bit annoying but then again we were faster on Tuesday. Another lap and we'd have got them, honest!

Updated: Well that was a bit of a result. On corrected time we were 30 seconds ahead of Mikado, and they're quite good as can be seen by their results in the recent Classics Week in Cowes here.

Managed to get a few shots of the gaff riggers start before camera was stowed below as we were in our 5 minutes.
