The Marcus Burke Wooden Launch Navigation Rally was run and won on Sunday. Nine boats completed an 11 nautical mile course, pitting their navigation skills against each other. The idea being not of the fastest time but the one closest to their own nominated time, sounds easy right?
Boats collected points en route to accumulate a golf like score where the boat with the least amount of points won the day. There was some controversy in the third edition of the race.
Eventual winner Weerona Bay completed the course correctly, which is more than can be said of some other navigators on course! The half model trophy and scavenger hunt prizes were awarded at lunch after the rally.
Plans are afoot to expand the Rally to include all wooden boats next year, Couta boats included. So get your team together and join in the fun.
Winner: Weerona Bay
4th: Folie a deux
9th: April (Retired)
