Update from Michael Clements:
As of last week we are sitting at 21 boats, of which:

  • 13 are Registered, 2 are possibles, (Mike Merrick's team from Bellingham and Duncan Cameron from LA)
  • No word yet from Cam Grey in Maple Bay; Judith from Victoria; or the new owner in Ladysmith

So the final count will probably be 19-20 boats.

 Last but never least:

THE BIGGEST BLOODY BLUNDERER!

Allan strains credulity to score a win on the blunder meter.

Allan receiving BBB from AlanAllan can't believe his, er, luck in garnering recognition as TOP BLUNDERER. He went from first to last in a Cow Bay race for sailing through a start-finish line en route to the leeward mark. His defense was deeply murky and clearly not convincing.  The coveted 'Not Fred' trophy was narrowly missed by others, most notably Michael Clements, but in true democratic fashion, the audience was most audibly in favour of the skipper from Shadowfax.
