Dockside some interesting comments
GOA/NOVA – Skipper Chris Tyquin, quote from Darren ‘Twirler’ Jones
‘It’s a long race in a Farr 30 but we took advantage of cruising the wake of the bigger boats who towed us up the course. This race is quite tactical and being that we were one of the five Farr 30’s we really had to stay focused for the entire time. Definitely happy to be the first Farr 30 home. We gave our ETA at the Tropic of Capricorn which was just over a minute out from our finish time. Can’t complain’
GOA looks like a special for the Navigator’s Prize.
