A grim weather forecast was not enough to lessen the enthusiasm for this years charity race. The threatened stong winds did not show up and the showers couldn't dampen our spirits.
We had a great turn out with 10 boats on the start line, 8 in the A class fleet and 2 in the B class. This included two visiting boats from our neighbours at Erith who bravely punched the tide to make it just in time for the start.
A number of boats started with reefs in, but most shook them out by the top mark.
The course was perfectly timed for the tides and the ebb started as most of the A boats were on the second leg.
The results show just how close the corrected times were with just seconds separating a number of boats.
High Spirits claimed line honours and overall victory in the A Class.
Midas Touch did exactly the same in the B Class.
A special shout out goes to Slippery When Wet for her debut outing under Thurrock colours.
Because we raced A and B fleets this race will not count against the Saturday Series.
Across the race and the following festivities we raised a massive £593 for Cancer Research. Well done all!
