I like to see a bit of "planning ahead", but it's 14 months away still!

Unless your talking about this year.

I'm either to slow, or possibly to quick for you lot!

What I meant was that if your starting to think of accomodation and ferries for "this years" event, your leaving it a bit late! IMHO of course.

And VT, what exactly do you think the officials could do about the "rag and stick biggots"?

power must give way to sail so they say mmmmh
Well unless it's the start or on a turn marker .......................

I can recall a race at Allhallows off we went from the start 30 + abrest slap bang into a dingy race 3 miles further down, they didn't read the notices nor the club that that organised it didn't speak to PLA. There were bloody powerboats & dingy's everywhere, they got wetter than we did.

I've just been told in the last 15 minutes basically the same thing although the quote was "almost certainly Sunday".

Seems you got better info than I did.
