We certainly got what we were expecting - and maybe a bit more than some of us were expecting!
It's a rare thing to go from 5th to 29th (ie. last) in the space of 30 seconds, and then take back 10 places in the next 5 minutes, and still make it back to the first 10 by the end of the race... but this sort of thing just kept on happening!!!!
It certainly kept us on our toes.
What blew me away at presentation was the reports of all the capsizes that had happened - somehow I had missed ALL of them.
Clap hanger nominations
Gary Johnson - no sure what he did but he was nominated. I believe he was one of the swimmers.
Sarah Floyd - capsizing with excessive squealing
Peter Lyons - capsizing twice in one race, one right on the finish line
Daniel Stone - dropping his GPS over the side during the race
Rob Lott - parking at the finish line to let everyone through before he finished (I'm sure he wasn't the only one that happened to).
Neil Joiner - getting rather excited on approach to the finish line when there were 15-20 cat rigs sitting around the finish line, and 3 sloops on his tail - "bugger-off you lot".
Peter Lyons received the prestigious award for his dedication to entertaining the spectators.
