Putney - Calais

With the success of the RB08 and the resurection of the C-T-C. How about re-running the Putney - Calais - Putney or a s it later became London - Brighton. This was for all offshore classes as I did it in a 16 foot Phantom with a 90HP yam, once in extremely rough conditions for such a small boat
