100 Enter DMYC's King of the Bay Challenge Tomorrow

The DMYC say a late surge in entries means nearly 100 boats will race for their King of the Bay Challenge tomorrow, offering the cruisers a semi–coastal race and the dinghies a combination of a pursuit race and a standard handicap race. The on line entry system shuts down at 22.00 hours, so some time left this evening.

The question of whether a foiling moth can catch an IDRA with a forty two minute head start, after the IDRA has raced eighty three minutes will be answered. Who wins the Tortoise or the Hare ?
