|These boats are really impressively big|
Wild Oats did end up setting the race record by about 16 minutes and finished in 1 day, 18 hours, 23 minutes.
Despite the early arrival there were still lots of boats on the water to welcome the winner. This photo doesn't really capture just how many boats there were. The wave they created soaked everyone that was standing too close to the shore.
In front of the judges box were some men all kitted up with ye olde cannon to be fired at the end of the race. It was pretty loud as we were only about ten metres from it.
