CHRISTIAN BLIGH Fetches marks, collects bounty.

Colin Potter and crew crushed the M242 Fleet with a clever course around the Tiddly Cove Scramble. 

Finishing nearly 3 minutes ahead of the next Martin, Christian Bligh clearly took the best advantage of the prevailing conditions.  Colin's route was unique among the remaining Fleet One boats except for Check Mate who tried to follow but couldn't keep up.
