The Guernsey Rowing Club BTS Challenge was the first of the Handicap Series where boats are given start times based on their previous performance and have to chase down the slower boats who set off first.
Recently back from a long weekend competing in the UK with Formula Windsurfing, I did not feel best prepared for this race. I had not managed to charge up my GPS so there was no track from this event and more importantly, the feedback I would normally obtain through the race was not available which threw me off guard.
However, this was a short and fast course with many boats around you at all times which kept things engaging. After some interesting mark rounding manoeuvres, another record fell to the Glow boat.
