A great race to finish the season on. In strong gusty conditions Nellie May (photo) won the Falmouth Oyster Festival race for B class with Grace second and Rita third. In C class it was Leila first followed by Mary Anne. The racing working boats were also joined by two Truro River Oyster Dredgers, Alf Smythers and Mystery who represent the origin of the class. Rebecca unfortunately broke her bowsprit on the first beat to windward of the 3 lap course around the inner harbour and was forced to retire.
