At this time, the gasoline supply tube to my motor had cracked, - and the motor stopped!
I actually wanted to go further out at sea to see the big ships at the start of the "race".
They were gathered quite close together, and would have made a spectacular sight, - but for me the race was over. 
I had to get back into port, and at the same time the wind picked up, - and small rain started to fall -, so maybe it was good that I did not chase the big ships too far out to sea.

I will end this years "race" with a picture of the most important and most powerful player in this event, - the ocean -, that never fails to impress.
