Walker Bay Race!

Furiends while we were buddy boating with SV Fubbs And SV Lupa Di Mare this summer, we had so much fun together. One of the highlights for the males in our group was the day we held a Walker Bay race!

It started as a bit of fun of course, but it soon got fiercely competitive and amusingly eventful!

Let the race begin

The three Captains started out but Team Fubbs soon exercised their right to substitute and sailor Joey took over in their Walker Bay…

…this opened up the space for an impartial adjudicator and rescue boat operator in our dear Nippy.

They had several heats and each race got more eventful than the next!

The wind picked up and there was soon lots of excitment! There were capsizes, a broken rudder and LOTS of laughter.

Bailing the Walker Bay

There were some discussions about the winner, my human was the only one to return back to the mother boats without help from Nippy, our rescue dinghy so he believes he won…

I think the true winner was Joey though. He easily stole the show with his purrfect sailor skills!

We all love our Walker Bays and it was a great day!

Bisous, Bailey

  4. Never heard of those dinghies, but they seem fun to race.
    Being the only one to return unaided seems to me to constitute a win, indeed.

  11. And where did Admiral Bailey oversee from? The bow sprit or lazing along the mast?

    I’m always impressed by your vocabulary, Bailey! But, I know Siamese are superior in all ways, right? 🙂


  13. The Walker Bays are great fun… Don’t know about laughing when you break a rudder though!


I'd love to hear what you think....
