Welsh Poker Run pics

July 28th saw the first Pwllheli Poker Run hosted by Ocean Powerboats.

Fastest boat on the day was a Formula Fastech which came over from Germany. He reckoned he was hitting 90mph at times.

It all went pear shaped on the fourth leg when the fleet decided to follow the leading boat whose navigation to the card boat was somewhat inaccurate. This left the fleet scattered over Cardigan Bay which took a bit of rounding up.

Everyone had a great time as this was the first experience of this type of event for many people.

The Miami Vice party in the evening was a great success once the Liverpool Mafia had their guns confiscated.

Some pics of the day.

Should have followed the Sheepcraft.
