Will Scott and Jamie Scott finished 75th from 100plus in this: if you consider that they have barely raced their family cruising boat, one of the oldest at the event, and that just a few weeks ago they were up at the club on a Tuesday learning how to use the pole spinnaker then I think this is a pretty impressive result...
Some names you''ll recognise in this one amongst the Radials, notably John Reay, 12th overall and 2nd Grand Master and Kevin Pearson, 14th/4th. Full results now here.
