Lies, damned lies and statistics

With apologies to Disraeli.

Whitworth, Fenwick, Crozier and Berri - all together for the day. I'd like to be able to report that a combined age of 244 years - if Fenwick is telling the truth -and a combined total of about 50 Hobart races along with all the wisdom and experience that ought to go with it triumphed in the Great Veterans race today. But it didn't.

We came 10th out of about 20. Pics later if anyone took any. The GV race is for boats over 30 years old that have done a Hobart race. Quite a fleet but a gentle flukey day and Berri not fleet at all. Interesting to know how many Hobart races there were represented out there - boats and geriatric crew members combined.
