I'm going out from Poole to help with safety, will head out to watch the boats going west for the CTC, then head back to help with the race around the bay, some classses are doing 2 laps, then may try to catch some of the Torquay botas heading back.

Maybe if its calm enough & the weather is nice enough . Went a few years ago and the wake of all the race boats was interesting in a bigger rib . Not sure my 4m would deal with very well.

I'd prob tow to Lymington but I'd need to look at the exact course to work out whats best for the wind etc .

I have been to see the start for the last two years, both times very rough, but exciting to watch. Might well go and have a look if it is halfway decent. Probably leave Poole about 09:00 to catch the 10:00 start off Hurst if I do go.
