If its that bad there won't be any racing anyway

Actually the PPG hull has more recovery and buoyancy coupled with softer riding bow sections than most RIBs of its size.

There is still a blanket 25 knot wind limit on most of the legs of the Cowes to Monte race!

Morning John, are you saying they are limiting the speed if the wind speed is 25knts or the boats are limited to 25knts

I've yet to read one of Alans posts that is something other than negative and dismissive of everyone elses boating ventures and that doesn't come across as being very 'smug' .......

Can't you try and cheer up and be posative & encourging ?

Maximum wind speed of 25knots before the boats go on the trailer to the next destination - Having spoken to "The RYA" they are trying to make this dependent on direction as there is a big difference between 25 knots onshore to offshore!

Limiting the boats to 25 knots would be a bit silly though!
