The BIG Lap was won by Corum with Electra finishing second - congratulations to those two as they were the only two boats to finish in a frustrating light wind race.The 50+ boats which took part in the charity event on Saturday got off to a reasonable start but the wind died with the majority of the fleet behing Peel Island. As the day wore on, some boats manage to drift slightly more quickly than others and made good gains. The wind seemed to come back after an hour or more of drifting and meant that most of the fleet could get round to the north of Peel Island and head for the shortened course finish at Hope Banks. However the wind was not to cooperate and despite the race cut off time being put back by half an hour no boats were to cross the line in time after Corum and Electra.

The Big Lap prizegiving and dinner at MBTBC on the Saturday night was a great success with the club catering for its largest ever function! Gerald Edmunds of the Brain Foundation addressed the crowd and paid tribute to the late Peter Baird who was the original inspiration for the Big Lap event, now in its 4th year.

The Manly Weekend was rounded out with a race on Sunday which saw light conditions once again, but this time there was enough breeze to get everyone to the finish line in plenty of time. A free sausage sizzle back at MBTBC while waiting for the results was a welcome bonus.

Many thanks to the Big Lap and Manly Weekend committee, the sponsors and of course all of you who entered and competed - we hope to see you all again next year!

Meanwhile you can purchase fantastic Big Lap photos from Jules Geldard of VidPicPro who generously donated her time for the charity event. Jules is providing special package deals (for example, just $100 for all of the images of your boat) but you'll need to be in quick as the offer is only good for 2 weeks. Visit Jules' website http://vidpicpro.com/yacht-racing for all of the pricing details and info on how to purchase your happy snaps!
