Northern Century Preliminary Results...

The Preliminary Results of the Northern Century (aka Iron Man) are just in - local boats dominate!

1st - Express 37
2nd - Stranger
3rd - Schussboomer
4th - Endurance

All other boats retired - which tells you how difficult the race was.

The Express finished about an hour ahead of the pack after taking a huge gamble short tacking the beach down Saanich Pennisula. The remaining three were neck & neck heading out to Hein Bank and finished within minutes of each other at Skyline - it couldn't get any closer, especially after 100 miles of very difficult sailing!

More on the race later when I recover...for now, here is a picture from the start...
