Why did it take them so long? did they stop for Pimms in Ventnor ? could they not go a bit quicker? marshalls must have been really quite cross hanging around for the stragglers who have been on a booze cruise.

I rekon it took em that long as Martin was having a few scoops in the Folly the nite before when we seen him , the place was packed so set of late the next morning with a hang over.

Like the pics of the scorp . So what was the quickest time round the island. On the day it was hard to tell who was racing and who wasnt at the finish line.

From the photo:-
The main is over sheeted.
The kite is over sheeted.
The spinny pole is too far forward.
The crew should be off the bow.
The crew should be heeling the boat to leeward.
The helmsman should be awake.
There is too much beer on board. (It should have all been drunk the night before.)

To name 7 reasons.

The finish team retire to the bar for pink gin and hot totty at 21:00 and you have to log your own time between then and 22:00.

Ian
I stand corrected. I think the Storm and Tempest have the same hull.
Team Scooby must have been very tempted to start the iron horse.
I am sure they still had a great day.

7 hours ish for a mono hull, the multi hulls donít count because they arenít real yachts We did it in 11 and half hours which is a personal slowest time Des

Mark,

Apart from those things was it ok?

BTW can you ever have too much beer on board?

Ian.

More or less Ian.

Re Beer. I always found beer onboard was unwanted weight. (Fingers crossed behing back). In theory you should have had so much the night before you could not face any for days.
A stonking hangover is one of the best incentives to get a race over and done with as fast as possible so you can get back to the bar for a hair of the dog.

Mark didnt mention the luff of the main is way too tight,look at the canvas behind the mast,a looser outhaul may have helped also

A friend of mine had a Tempest,he found it quick but only in a bit of breeze!

I heard that Alan Priddy, in Liveley Lady, finished at 22:00:01 and therefore also recorded as DNF

I think that could be true. I picked him & his crew up from the Lively Lady on a swing mooring at about 22.30 and gave them a lift to the yacht club, where he dashed off to register a time. I am pretty sure that he told me that they missed the deadline by a minute or so

Ian.

Spot on Paul.
It looks like it has in-mast roller reefing. Main halyard tension tends to be ignored with them things.
It also looks like it needs strop or car on the clew too.

Also who is trimming the kite and I hope the guy is not cleated off. Lost all the cutlery and crockery overboard doing that once.
