There are a lot of considerations to running a race like this - if it's the one I'm thinking of there was a large ship coming in early or late and the race had to change start times to suit - QHM rules! Having said that now the actual start is out of the Solent it will make things a lot easier as that is not under QHM control!

Yep - knew it wasn't the full on race. Cruised for a few mins next to one of the Fairy boats ( 333) on its way back and saw one of the goldfish ribs heading backin to Poole. Calmed alot for them on the way back I think.

Hopefully Sunday will be a safe/smooth and fast trip for all, I'll look out for you & Biff !

Good luck .
