B Final – our last race of the day

After a few practice starts for the camera,  then a demonstration
race in C Final with a cameraman in seat 1 – it is fair to say we were
a bit tired for our B Final race.

after B Final – waving to the crowd!


The UA Power Dragons watched the races from the shoreline, and
chanted our names after the race.  They have turned into our #1
cheering section.  It was great to see such enthusiasm in a 1st
year team.  I coach them on Saturday mornings.
