A few at the start of todays race

Great to see so many boats out - a superb noise when they started . Hopefully Biff & Cookee got on well ?

Oh and the XSR was bobbing around inside Hurst.

Loved the photo heli with legs hanging out.. ah and if anyone wants to get footage etc for anything try ..www.fmtvmedia.com

Did hear 'time bandit' and 'grimalkin' on the radio , but came back for bacon and coffee.

We also saw the heli running about twenty feet off the stern of a returning racer on Friday with the cameraman hanging out, You have to trust everyone onboard I guess that low and filming the action

Great pictures Pete.

We saw them going Westbound on our first trip out, very interesting to see how much the tracks differed between the boats.

Throughout the the rest of the day saw them coming back very well spaced apart.

With the strong Westerly wind, I did not envy them punching through for hours on end, the novelty would soon wear off.

Cheers - Louise took the pics as I tried not to get in anyones way. I found it bumpy back from Hurst - but then I don't weigh in at 8-14t like some of the bigger race boats - I even managed to take a wave over the bow which rolled nicely up the screen as I ducked and it mostly over my head!

Good photos!

I was in a borrowed orange Avon 5.6 RIB & confirm it was rather lumpy out there yesterday.

When we left Cowes at 3pm plastic tables were being blown accross the hard by the band tent. I have to say that I wasn't looking forward to the journey back to Poole as I edged out into the Solent but it was actually great fun. I'm so battered I can't move today though!

I was out yesterday (Monday) and saw one of these boats trying to get out of the South Basin of Cowes Yacht Haven - right into the path of the ferry coming in. To my inexperienced eye it looked incredibly close to being an 'incident'.

I think the ferry captain thought so too as he gave five blasts and had to stop rather promptly.
