This is the Yellowbrick Tracker URL for the 2012 Cowes Torquay Cowes race.

Carl - Are you free that day ??? Seriously, more likely that a rough weather course would be used, if needed.

Lay Day

There is no Lay Day on the Monday.

We have had a lay day in place for 2010 & 2011.

For 2012, once again rules have been tightened.

To put in place a lay day now is akin to running a separate race - with all that is involved, Harbour Master permissions, RYA Course Approvals etc.

min 13.0° / max 18.3° ---------- min 12.2° / max 18.6° ------------ min 14.2° / max 17.4
Wind 24.2mph ------------------ 15.0mph ------------------ 17.3mph
Rain fall 24.1m ------------------ 3.1mm ------------------ 12.9mm

Charts earlier today and this afternoon show a weak ridge of high pressure trying to push back in to the south coast early Sunday, the winds definitely weaken as the day progresses!!!

That's just too much!! A lay day just used to be a paragraph added into the racing instructions, what has happened to change that? So, now "lay day" is a banned expression?

Probably only a disclaimer to not start criticising it on a public internet forum if you can't see your favourite boat. (I'm joking - Mr Holmes. )
