Irish rabbit gets chased down

The Greyhounds lined up for the start while the Irish rabbit chased its tail off to the left. When 2:30 struck the chase was on!
Unfortunately the rabbit (No regrets) was left in the dust as Loaded Dice and Black Sun overtook and scampered away from the rabbit start.  A typical SWer kicked in for the afternoon around 15knots.  Which made the reaches exciting sailing the well known SW course. Loaded dice held onto a modest lead for most of the race however that lead got slightly eaten into on the reach across the bay to university as Creeper made a comeback.
Creeper, Keysie and Craig had a fight for the podium with Craig taking many risks to try and find a winner. No Regrets ripped the clew out of their mainsail and are had to retire. Some footage of this to come!
With only a couple of races left in the season apparently the leader board is quite close. Yet to see any results though. Must be in pre-presentation lock down to keep so the bookies can make a killing
