There was a fresh, gusting strong, west-nor'westerly in Carrick Roads for this year's Silver Oyster Race for Falmouth Working Boats (05/Nov).
The larger Class B boats thrived in the conditions while the smaller Class C struggled particularly in the choppy conditions near the Messack buoy.
Alf Smythers (Chris Ranger) and Kelsie (Kevin Leity) won the Class B and Class C prizes for licensed boats while Moon (Rocco), the only unlicensed entry, comfortably led the fleet home on the water.
The Race Team were grateful to Arfie Treneer, not only for the use of his fishing boat Treneglos as committee boat but also for his ability to identify the working boats without their distinguishing top-sails.
