West Lancashire Yacht Club - 24 Hour Race 2007

THE annual West Lancashire Yacht Club, 24 Hour Race was held over the 15 September 2007 and 16 September 2007 on the Southport's Marine Lake. The race this year had a slow start, for all three categories, Enterprise, GP14 and Lark, but the wind slowly picked up, so did the pace. The event was yet another success and had crews from all over the UK, as well as some from further a field. As normal the official charity of the event was Race 4 Cancer and also the event had entertainment in the form of live music and a Disco on both Friday and Saturday nights.  They keeped the hundreds of spectators, who lined the shoreline, entertained.
