10 hours of sun blistering heat and no wind or is that 10 hours of rain and gales? Team up or go solo for this annual pitting of man against nature, a true battle of endurance, not for the faint-hearted. There may be tea and snacks served on the lake but then again that could be you hallucinating after 8 hours.
Date 24th June 2017

Boats and crews.
Single handers Can be sailed solo or with maximum two alternating.
