The 52nd annual Royal Gazette Wahoo Tournament was a huge success yesterday, despite fears of the effects of Hurricane Florence.

Organiser John Barnes said that about 30 boats had signed up to take part in the competition.

Mr Barnes said: “The conditions have been great. There has been some communications going around on WhatsApp that people were very pleased with the weather.

“We were definitely watching out for the storm earlier this week, but the timing of these things can be difficult.

“It’s one of those things where if you push it to next weekend, we might have to cancel again because of another storm.”
