    Queen's Regatta Results
    The Ocean


    Sailors from around the Kingdom set sail to the Britain bay to take
    part in the Queen's Regatta. Registration was handled by EM Dudley
    at the Britain docks. A line of ships were set in place for everyone to
    line up on. Once everyone was in place they had to wait awhile
    before 8:00 rolled around. The SHE guild had no trouble passing
    the time. Spit balls flew from the vessel onto other in attendance.

    Kijustsu Anei Village and Kijustsu Anei Keys ships fired back. Casting
    fire fields and useing firework wands to strike the SHE Ship. Other
    vessels such as Nanocs summoned very large Demons. The other
    ships thought twice before sending any fire over that way.
    Unfortunately we could not see far enough down the line to see
    how others passed the time.


    EM Dudley appeared before each ship. Setting down a small box. He
    announced once they explode the race would begin. However the
    one sailing the SHE vessel got a little trigger happy but, don't worry
    they moved back into place....*cough* *cough*

    The boxes exploded in a massive flame and everyone set off.
    Some minor boat bumping did occur, but that was to be
    expected. Everyone raced for the first way point location.


    A few ships were reported to have sank and on another vessel the
    captain was thrown overboard. Each way point had a ship waiting
    surrounded by sea monsters. On board each ship was a sailor
    yelling the next set of coordinates to head to.


    Towards the end of the race the crews representing Kijustsu Anei
    Village and Guardians Gate passed each other and waved. With Niva
    the Savage and Lord Gareth in the lead they knew they had to pick
    up the pace. At the last way point they let the ship sail by itself. They
    quickly went into hiding and sailed through the sea monsters. Hearing
    the sailor yell the final set of coordinates they quickly took control
    of the ship again and set sail.


    The SKS Shipping Ship from Kijustsu Anei Village pulled in first. Queen
    Dawn greeted the winners. They were asked to dock next to the
    Queens ship. Lord Balandar (not Balander) came aboard Queen
    Dawns Vessel to give her some disturbing news.

    Guardians Gate sailed in moments later taking second place. They
    were also informed of the disturbing news. The Lemon Fresh ship
    from Kijustsu Anei Keys, captained by Mr Clean and his crew, Tiger
    Lily and Mirt came in Third place. Congratulations to everyone who
