I would give you a run for your money Scotty if only someone would lend me a safty boat! Now then I will and say this!

If your not racing then come down and watch the race and support the event. Good turn out last year lets see if we can make it a better turn out this year!

I think I may seriously drop Cowes this year, especially as it is the last of the three. Dont want to fork out a fortune to go there again and run the risk of not having a boat to race, owing to possibly sustaining damage at Littlehampton the week before. My other half regularly asks me who I am cos with working away she forgets what I look like, so after 3 weeks away she would probably lock me out!!

I just would not get any National points for that venue. I will also be missing Poole in June because of family business I cannot get out of. But hey, shit happens!

Now if *everyone* skipped Cowes, then Cowes would not be an issue!!

It is Shyte with the P1's and we could all get together and get Cowes dropped as a National Event...

I used to love Cowes. second only to Guernsey.

Agree, the water is challenging, but great all the same.

I would add though, that I've never raced as a driver in Guernsey, only as a on board engineer.
