Curry Queen Nilam Wright is riding high after triumphing in the Shoestring Group’s first ever pursuit race. Four boats took part in the 90 min race in the Mar Menor, from Los Narejos around (Isla Perdequera) – Sardine Island – and back.  Nilam has notched up a first for the Group by being the first female winner of The Shoestring Challenge Trophy.

The Boats were started at staggered intervals calculated from their handicaps – slowest away first, fastest last.
