Have fun, on a personal note I think they should lob you off the top diving board adding a bit more realism......

I'll happly blast off in a powerboat but dont have the balls to go and dive off the top board... funny old world

The real dunk test - or the helicopter dunk test that has no resemblance to a boat crash whatsoever?

Scottyboy,
Why are you doing a dunk test? You dont need to for a basic race.

Which V24 are you racing in?

Are you entering the other two national races as well? ( The latest ruling is that non nattional championship V24's can race in the other two Cowes events as well as around the island!
