Round the Island Race

Our daughter's in-laws live on the Isle of Wight and sail. Yesterday Ray Foster, his son Pete and a friend took part in the epic Round the Island Race sailing their yacht Shikari along with over 1500 other yachts. Conditions were good and they managed to complete the circuit in respectable time, for their boat, of 9 hours 52 minutes finishing in 1236th place. Well done to the crew. Slightly different boating from tackling locks on the Grand Union!
