The Eddystone Pursuit is a very important fund-raising event for Horizons Plymouth and this year we entered 9 boats in 3 teams. Unfortunately there was not much wind and it was very hot. The high spot for ‘Papagena’ was taking delivery of 3 freshly-cooked hot dogs and 3 ice-cold drinks from ‘Bessie’ while about 2 miles offshore! You can see what happened in the video:
We did very well overall. Our Hawks won the team prize again – despite having been given a big handicap at the start. We raised over £13,000 in prizemoney and sponsorship.
Well done to all those who sailed, all those who sponsored and all those who helped with the overall organisation!
