Not only at Cowes, but we need more boats at the western end of the course, if anyone can spare their boat on Sunday 26th August.
Poole Bay & around Torquay (Mouth of Tor Bay) are areas we would welcome volunteers to cover please.

Kindly contact me at: martin.napier1@talktalk.net if you can assist.

Many thanks to all those who have already kindly volunteered !!!
Have the Royal Torbay Yacht Club offered help, they did in 09 & 10? Of course you might have to go down there and ask! That used to work.

How awesome, so did Hannes order a new Buzzi then ?
I remember reading he had cancelled an order with Buzzi because 1350s were going to be allowed to race in Marathon ?

Is he doing Cowes to Monte Carlo does anyone know ?

Testing today

Having slung the boat back together in prep for Cowes, following a dormant period since Coniston last November, we ran it today on Southampton water.

Bussiness as usual it seems.

no cougar?

Is the cougar rib not coming out to play? And what about cinzano? I was hoping to see a bit of a battle between those two and the big ilmor us phantom.
