With all runners and
crew rowing approaching Plas Menai, Skipper Geoff West
took a gamble to save some rowing - it didn't pay off
and they ran hard aground.
Despite Eamonn's acrobatics and an attempt to tie a line
round a nearby navigation post and winch themselves clear
(see the dinghy below), they were stuck fast.
Not only stuck fast but on camera!
Now they must wait for high tide to refloat, knowing many
of the other smaller yachts will sail past them during
Sunday morning. The its a race to catch up.
There is only one consolation - Leopard Clipper are aground
Low point for Team Reflex.
