AZAB 2007

You're right - fascinating to follow the AZAB!

It was a race with all the things potential Jesters hate. Lots of rules, lots of committees, entry fees and so on. Also, a minimum size of boat! But I'm sure they all had a good time.

What tickled me was the list if finishers. They just about all made it (a couple retired or failed to start) but one boat was still out there when all the others were listed as 'arrived.'

It's name?

'Late Arrival'

Thanks for the link!
