Toby tug would have won, but my navigator was tired and needed a lay down, without opening the door, and I had to back off after I spilt me beer! Olly has the video to confirm!!

Ere Lloydey,
You had my ole ticker pumping a bit there!....You left it real late to get pass that Pirate Ribba....Din'tcha Geez!

Ross has down loaded the vid from the Gopro, but hasn't had time to up load to the web yet.....Hopefully tonight.

Like me, I think he's been beaten up by the P20 and the crazy prop testing in the Force 6 wind over tide episode some hours before the race.....hmmmm.....in hindsight....that wasn't my cleverest decision ey!?...lmao

Oi! Oi! Steffyboy! Bugger the truth, make it interesting ha! :o)

The truth of the matter was:

Yes! we were in wiv a bloody good chance having just gotten all the 7+ litres dailed in (and another round of Fosters, of course :o) and were just about to pass Pirate Ribba, when we touched upon a weee lille wave, you dropped ya beer, threw a strop, shut the throttles down, which sent our Gopro Camera man Ross flying forward straight through the Shagging area doors. Braking one completely off it's hinges....At which time you anounced, 'Me boats bust, it must be far too rough......Whilst I gestured 'loudly' in response, 'Just f'kinnnnn Nail it! you pussy, we can fix that later'.....You made no attempt what so ever and proceeded to turn Toby Tug Wave Destroyer around and head for shore.....Deep Sighhhhh.....Ya big Girl blouse!....lol.

However, after which, we did get front row seats watching Rich's planted P25 power by, looking as though he was just out on another Sunday afternoon's pleasure cruise, eating waves as if they weren't even there. Hmmmm....I did wonder if Di and the kids were there too......followed by Pirate Ribba with 2nd place his best option...lol... and then, Lloyde's P23, having been No match in the Rough stuff for Rich and his planted P25, was now on 'Mission Recovery' and absolutely on the ragged edge, desperately trying to catch Pirate Ribba in a rather spectacular fashion. Ducking and Diving, Port to starboard and back again, as he frantically zero'd in on Pirate Ribba's 2nd place.

Welldone Chaps!!!
Ross and I had a great day even though we'd....hmmm...OK! I'''d, earlier Bust the bow tanks fixings in TheMutz.

Hey Rich, Beware!......Coz TheMutz will be back next year to regain the Title....Te He
