Winter Series - Race 3 - FCC/ INCC Teams Race

The Big Race is on again, come one, come all.  This year teams can be 2, 3 or 4 boats (3 or 4 preferred).  So work out a group of boats that have similar speeds, work out your distances, and come up with inventive team names and costumes in preparation.  We have 4km (sub junior), 9km, 12km and 21km courses.

Full details are here.

Enter online beforehand via webscorer.  While you can enter on the day (7.30-8am only) it's cheaper and MUCH easier for all of us if you enter online beforehand.
