Watched the class 1 down there in 04 it's great fun, but the irony of it was the races I enjoyed the most was the Honda 150 as the lead changed constantly and it was such close racing with around 20 boats, it was a bit like a car race but on water, the class 1 boats seemed to spread out in a short while or break down. At the end of the race, having sat on the big lawn with loads of other groups, one thing became very apparent very few people new who won, inc a mate from the USA who has seen loads a races in the Keys, because of the pit lap, not sure if it,s still run like that but anything that confusess the public that much needs dumping and quick, sorry about the moan but it,s still great fun, hope you all ave a great time and cheer on the local lads in class 1

Dan thanks for an exellent weekend, plenty of beer was had on Saturday night.
Not sure if Scott (BAD BOY) was feeling great on Sunday tho!!

Good veiwing of the class ones from just outside the breakwater.

Got some good photos of various other Boatmad members which I will try to post torrow.

Cider Daze very good start to the race how did you finish? Couldn't really tell who was where with the spreader lap.

What a weekend saturday we came 5th sunday came 3rd we had 110 guests including our sponsers in the hospitality unit on the hoe. Sundays race we led for most of the race but were finally caught in the last couple of laps by negotiator and raymarine. Great weekend shame about King of Shaves, thanks to all safety boats who were there the weekend

Ist prize for blagging to Mr Badboy, didnt quite manage the full blag into the main tent tho eh. Great weekend all round, and I'd give the spare seat a go if you get stuck and once I've worked out all your hand signals, even had some prime money shots to cap it all of
