Allow Our Name’s biggest challenge has simply been making it to the finish line.
They’ve started numerous races only to pull out well before the end
“We’ve only finished twice and we’ve run second and first (on handicap) both those times,” Milham said.
“We’ve either missed the start or had some sort of issue on the boat on the other occasions, so it’s nice to actually finish a race.

“But the big one for us is the Keg Cup (a trophy for boats at the back-end of the fleet) after Christmas.
“That’s the one that we are aiming for.”
