I picked up my little 400HP runabout in the morning and can't wait to open up the throttles, something I couldn't do while getting the powerboat from the Marigot marina to the SMYC. We got our flags sorted out and our job was to be the finish boat for some of the classes. We were quite busy, so I didn't get to take as many pictures as in previous years; plus the small boat made for a relatively unstable platform. Nonetheless we had fun getting the boats sorted out on finishing and it was a good and easy start to the Heineken Regatta as we didn't have to do any of the starts.

Picking up the powerboats for the Regatta We picked up 3 powerboats on the French side, I got the nice one with two 200HP engines.
