Indecent Haste 4th out of 99 Boats - Governors Cup 2011
08 / 11 / 2011
Racing in the annual Governor's Cup by the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club (that name is deceiving, we didn't see much fresh water there at all when we were there - loads of beer and rum...not much fresh water!) Peter and his team on Indecent Haste did the Shaw 650 class proud, securing 4th overall in the 99 boat pursuit race.
Starting more than 20 minutes after eventual winner Thera (J. Fitzhardinge) the elapsed time of 1.56.43 was enough for 4th, beating GP42 Black Betty by less than 10 seconds. Super effort, and racing like this bodes well for the coming Summer season in beautiful Perth, where another 2 Shaw 650s are scheduled for delivery around the time of Geographe Raceweek, taking the number of Western Australian Shaws up to 4, and the number of Shaws in the water in Australia in early 2012 up to 12 boats.
