Re: EYC's Solomons Invitational Race

Yep, last year was not much fun. We ended up hugging the Eastern Shore which led to a 2 2 am tangle with a fish trap whilst I was on helm watch. Thankfully, I was able to squeeze the boat between two of the poles and we didn't catch anything with our keel. A slightly bent bimini rail was the only casualty. The wind died as we just reached the mouth of the river. We tried every trick but all we did was drift. About an hour later, and after drifting in a complete 360 we had had enough fun and through in the towel.

Glad you guys had a good run this year. Hope we have equally good weather for the Governor's Cup!
