“Just getting to the race course deserved points!”
For those that haven’t been Porthpean SC is nestled on its own secluded beach just outside St Austell with an enviable raised position offering spectators chance to look out over the impending carnage whilst enjoying the legendary hospitality and pasties...
Saturday dawned with some of the fleet already on site after a day touring the local sights on friday and enjoying a civilised meal in Castletown. The forecast which had put off many of the teams was pretty much spot on with local doom monger Puff Paddy welcoming everyone and already pointing out that rigging boats was probably pointless as the mounting SE Swell was going to make getting off the beach tricky to say the least.
