A great race was had by all 11 MRX yachts in the fleet on Friday 17th October 08 with all agreeing it was awsome to have the whole fleet out racing in it's own division.

After a panic aboard 1993, with Michael Thorpe in charge, when they dropped their main halyard shackle pin over the side, all was recovered when Dave Ridley of Hall Spars came to the rescue and all boats made it to the start just in time! Photos below and link to Album / Gallery on line
