Hi Tim - The chute at the start is always spectacular - then wherever the boats round a mark or Hurst point area where it kicks up a bit, or for round the Island No Mans Fort would be a good place - make sure you give the race boats enough room though there is nothing worse than spectator boats too close to the course when fighting for position!

Can't get any more passes but call me and I'll get you in if I can.

Just spoke to Kathryn (froglover) and she and Aging Youth should be out on Saturday to see the racing.

(Good on you Kevin. It must take a lot of courage to get back in the saddle after such a horrific experience.)

I have never seen a race and am excited about getting out on Saturday to see it.
Cookee, where is the "chute" ? Is this just outside cowes?

Hope to see some of you out there!

Many Thanks

Graeme

We will try to be there. Still got a little problem with the engine, something like oh dear the cam belt seems to have shredded and look the cogs have been damaged too. So subject to the various bits arriving and a very very nice engineer putting it all back together before the weekend we will be there.

Ahh the joy of changing boats.

Cowes On Saturday

To Paul & Kathleen,

Thanks for the call, We will be on the water with Tadpoles so keeping a close eye on the weather forecast; not looking promising at present. Is there an alternative meeting/viewing point on shore?

What are the timings or are to still be made? Give me a call on mobile when you can. Would love to catch up with you and chew the fat!

Best wishes
K & K

Ps Cookee Good Luck with the race.
