Mmmm , not sure if mixing it with 2000 yachts is such a good idea - depends when we intend going out. If mixing it with even the late starters it does get busy - got the tee shirt
However, if we start at shall we say a gentlemanly hour, the fleet will have spread out, minimising potential 'difficulties'.
Still cannot see the race organisers or the coastguard etc being very accommodating for what they may well see as complicating factors. The last time I did 'the race' it was amazing the number of mayday calls that were made
