GAUL REGATTA 2013
Sea Mist was the champion of the World,
and the crew their heads in the clouds did swirl.
But their joy was soon to be at a low ebb,
for along came that fellow called Webb.
But alas it all did start,
with a pyramid of rum, that was to dark.
The next day one of our crew had a big throb,
in his head and not in his heart.
In the first three races off Webb darted,
while on Sea Mist everyone smarted.
That night they tried to ease the pain,
with fillet and cake,
but it was all in vain.
The next day we sailed into the lead,
but a hole in the wind, made our hearts bleed.
For along came that fellow Webb,
sailing so well, that eventually he led.
With two races to go and it was all to do,
and helped along by a pirouette or two,
Sea Mist eventually got her two bullets too.
All to soon it was the last day,
and off we went, each our own way.
There is one last thing I want to say.
Thank you for your friendship,
thank you for the fun.
And to that fellow Webb!
You deserved to have won.
