What I don't know is when and where the start is, and how far is it approximately?

Also, will the weather be any good?

Sorry if this is dealt with somewhere in the thread.
To summarise;
Start is mouth of Wootton Creek on the IOW, 3 miles to the east of Cowes. Going Clockwise around the Island at approx 25knts. Departure from start point 1000 on Sunday 26th May.
Distance around the Island is 55NM + your distance from launching point.
Weather? Start praying to whatever deity it is you believe in

So if the weather real is that bad what's the plan? Postpone for a few weeks?

All the long range forecasts for the Bank Holiday weekend are predicting light NW, N, NE winds at the moment and fairly settled weather from next Wednesday onwards. Obviously still too early to give accurate forecasts but its looking promising for the 26th
