The annual Peace Bridge Race was held today. Starting the race was tricky as the wind was blowing from the NW and the tide was coming in. The decision was made to start the race going upwind heading to Leonard’s mark from the Perch. For some boats it was difficult to reach the mark against the tide. In light winds a big spread quickly occurred between the lead and following boats. Anton H/Joy W were going well and managed to catch up a bit. The race was shortened as the wind dropped. Congratulations to Ken and Davy L who won the race in a close battle with James P/Alan T the whole way up the river.

Many thanks to the rescue boats who came up the river and for providing the long tow home. Thanks also to the OD who had to make the calls to day.

The lead changed several times in the race. James P H/Alan T hit a mark and had to take a penalty turn. Anton H and Joy w also hit a mark and had to take turn.
