Hi Steve,

You gave it your best......frustrating I know, so unless someone steps up with 2k for the red jet there will not be a viewing platform at the start, which vindicates Johns earlier statement!

Entries for CTC Race

We all recognise that times are hard, but.................
John needs commitment from intending entrants please.

It is recognised that teams know that their entries, right upto cut off day, will be accepted, but in order that all the hard work going on "behind the scenes" is actually to be utilised, PLEASE teams, enter this historic race soon.

If not, then John might think of doing "The Unthinkable !"

Come on, you know you want to..........enter !

I have been working with David Sewell for too long. Francis informs me that he is only 71 (21 plus 50 odd years or so).

Cowes Classic 2013 - Entries

We currently have 12 boats paid up with entry forms received and I am fairly sure my Postmistress has mislaid HTS's entry!

Can I kindly remind any potential entrants that the closing date for entries is 31st of this month.

A 20% surcharge on entry fees will be applied to late entries received between 1st-14th of August.

Thanks in advance.
