Today's event was the “Round the Island Race” and it was started from and finished from a starting line at Fort Charlotte. I missed the early morning ride to the Fort, but Hans was kind enough to offer to give me a ride - but since we were already too late for the first starters we had a lot of time on our hands and opted for breakfast. After the tasty and leisurely repast we drove up to the start - Hans' vehicle is fortunately a sturdy four wheel drive that made short shrift of all the bumps on the way. I enjoyed watching the last of the big boys jockey for position and start; plus seeing the finishers come in.
