Round the Island Race 21st April 2018

print

The Round the Island Race wasn't as successful as we would have liked. Only 3 boats turned out and with a very early start there was very little wind to start with. By the time we got around the back of the Island there was very little water and we were sliding along the bottom, until Marie Louise came to an abrupt stop. With all 3 of us quite closely grouped, Jeddo was left with no choice other than a slightly more controlled grounding. We were able to motor off and had a futile attempt to pull Marie Louise off until the falling tide left us stuck mid channel. Azurian also I believe ran aground, but with a lifting keel were able to finish the race.
