Mayday. Although it’s not. Get in a few minutes short of the hour, just before the races. 30 lengths (3000 yards) feeling small. Temp a tepid 14C. Towards two hours tomorrow then. The race is for the Ken Rafferty Tankard. He was a stalwart of the old SLSC days, his nickname was Rafferty Raffles; as he was always raising money for the club. Chris Stanton wins the cup by decision of t’Race Officials Handicappers Committee. That’s him above, posing for the Stanton Cross shot; his daily favourite. Mrs Ape chats and swims. Not as long as I, but a lot longer than most. She’s on good form for the Seahorse.
