⛵⛵Brilliant footage onboard the Edge on the last race of the Autumn Series!🌊🌊

Dazcat Media defected to The Edge for the last race of the Royal Western Yacht Club Autumn Series. Nice to finish the season with some wind! Four Multihull Centre boats out today. On board The Edge were owner Chris Briggs, Dominic Gooding (owner of Dazcat 10 'Belladonna') on the helm, Dan Drew (Highwater Sails) and Charlie crewing. Also out was Dazcat 995 'Easy Tiger' with owner Neil Boughton and 'Hissy Fit' (D1495) and Simon Biffa Baker. Hissy Fit was doing some mighty spectacular hull flying but things were also pretty hectic on board The Edge at the time so it's the shot that got away - captured only in the memories of those who saw it...but wow, what a sight she was, absolutely tanking along and appearing to be perfectly poised and in control with one hull at least six feet higher than its usual position! Also out was Alien II with owner Richard and yard team Brendan Seward and Matt Theobald with Dominic's son Josh. Matt Baker on his Grainger 'Wombat' must have had a couple of 'moments' as towards the end of the race he was flying the smallest sail any of us had yet seen on Wombat. What a great last blast before the boats start to come out of the water for their winter rest....

Thank you to everyone (all 35 of you) who turned up for the first meetup of Plymouth Marine Network. A particular thank you to Neil Dunkley and the Royal Western Yacht Club for assisting with the organising, hosting and for his talk on the OSTAR and TWOSTAR races in 2020. Thank you to Will Rahdar from Plymouth Yacht Haven for his very entertaining presentation and Conrad Humphreys for his talk feeding back from the Yacht Racing Forum in France, the plans for an Ocean Academy in Plymouth and the Mayflower 2020 Legacy.
