Cowes 2007

Marvellous weather, biggest crowds for years and some fantastic racing?
excuse me but surely a race is when someone crosses the line first,since when do raceboats stop because they have gone too fast? do me a favour if there is one way to kill a sport they are going the right way about it.
Please some one use their influence to stop this stupidity before it creeps into all sporting events,can you picture it! "excuse me Mr Hamilton you going too fast you 've got to stop in the pits for 2 mins so everyone else can catch up!" Oh for the good old days!

Mike
