LOST please help

Published by under Bilge

The sandhopper fleet has been lost, someone must know where they have gone?

A fantastic day this Sunday with perfect sailing conditions and only four arrived, Nore race last weekend and only three!

They must be somewhere, perhaps they have all gone to the dark side and joined the sprint fleet?

Please help and find the lost souls of a once fantastic race fleet that have been lost.

If you cannot find them, please feel free to take charge of their empty boats and go sailing. They will never know.

Thank you
