Dinghy Fishing Derby for beer - Dolphins -

 s/v Sea Turtle IV organized a dinghy fishing derby.  Entry fee was 2 beers per person with first prize taking 60% of the beers, second prize taking 20% and third place taking 10%.  The Derby ran from 8AM to 11AM and seven boats participated in the event.  In the outer bay a pod of dolphins provided entertainments as the fishing was slow.  In the end only one fish was caught by the entire fleet.  So back at the organizers boat we awarded first prize then everyone enjoyed sharing stories while consuming the 2nd and 3rd prize.
 Post-derby get together aboard s/v Sea Turtle IV. 
Dolphins spent plenty of time playing around our dinghy.  I suspect this is part of the reason we didn't catch anything.
