No racing on sunday either. Reel shame as it appeared to be a good turn out by all. IMHO thats the way foward i.e having several classes/styles (ocr, ski batboats etc etc) racing in the same venue over the shame weekend. Good crownds on the pier just a shame you cant rely on the British weather!!
Good to meet you all (apart from the girl who threw her drink over me in club med)

That has always been my way of thinking, always enjoyed a multi-class meet but it ain't worked (at least with OCR) in the past, because the other/all "classes" can't agree on the costs of the event! This has got quite deep i.e. there's 30 of you(s) & 15 of us!
Somebody has to sort the finite details out before it's too late!

Fantastically organised weekend...big thanks to Shirley, Dave & all others who organised a great weekend.

The weather was bad & the sea was real ugly near the harbour, due to south/south/west force 7/8 winds. After the race was called off, I and Miles went out for a spin in Hot Lemon with Mike. It was rough for 400/500meters around the harbour; however after that, it was at worst 3ft close chop. I and a few others would have been fine to race if they had moved the northern marks 500m south, 80% of the course would have been flat out. However even in these 3ft seas it would have been dangerous for the cats & 2ltr bat boats due to the high winds, as LH proved.

The V24's, Mr Stirling, Hot Lemon, Extreme Racing, us (Marex) & Gav (only after buying a couple of sand bags) would have been fine. North Wales (sunday), LH (sunday) and Cowes (sunday P1)
were actually at least twice as rough as Torquay.

I understand the decision to call the racing off on sunday, considering the situation & view from the harbour. However I feel that these tough decisions should be made with as much info as possible. I appreciate that the decision is based on safety, and if anything untoward happens whilst racing, all decisions are analysed in microscopic detail. At all Basic races I have attended this year, a race official has examined all the course & conditions in one of the safety boats, before any final rough weather briefing. This did not happen I understand in Torquay for various reasons, which in my opinion was a shame.

I and my family had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. Everyone who was involved should be proud of their behaviour, demeanour,
sense of humour & attitude in miserable conditions. My only regret is obviously I missed the chance to get the boat wet & have a go at reversing the Cowes result by beating Hotlemon.
In those conditions it would have been unlikely, but fun all the same.

Have a good winter everyone, be safe & good luck for 2007.

Boating finished, 1st Ice Hockey game next friday...If its fun it hurts!!!

PS anyone in Devon want to buy 250 litres of unleaded, £3 a gallon or offers?

Cheers Paul
