The Telegramme Tresco Trophy, organised by the Yacht Club de Morlaix,is now en route for Gurnesey. At about 16:30 this afternoon 1May 113 boats queued up for the lock in Morlaix harbour. About five locks worth of boats later they were all on route for the open sea and the start of the race. They were seen off by hundreds of well wishers and a fantastic Jazz band.

The first yachts started their race at about 18:30. The bigger class of boats were still coming down the river as I returned home to make sure my guests were still content.
