An embarrassing moment from race management - How about connecting the ground tackle and laying a 6 foot diameter (brand new) bright orange dumpy buoy as a wing mark, then hearing later on the radio that the Dart fleet are pursuing it towards the Isle of Wight in order to round it. (Race Abandonned). Got the buoy back, but not the ground tackle. Check your knots!

Or in the same event, someone else's embarrassment as their Dart rammed and punctured the same buoy (which was back on station). .Intersting watching it deflate across the bows, effectively anchoring the boat that still wanted to sail at high speed. That took a few minutes to sort out, partly becasue the RIB crews were laughing so much!

Yeah definatly an amusing time.

You know the small balck bouys that can be used as spreader marks etc, well a friend of mine ran over one of those with his boat and burst it, not only was he penalised in the race but was made to pay for a new bouy.
