Sat 26th June 2004 Round the Island Race

We're planning to meet up with a friend to follow the race as loads of yachts circumnavigate the Isle of Wight anti clockwise. The race starts at Cowes with a staggered start between 6am and 7.30am. We don't reckon we'll be around that early but are planning to be at Calshot around 10.30 and then catch up with the flotilla. There's likely to be boats racing for most of the day so should be plenty to see.

So do any forum members fancy joining us? If so, either post here or use Channel 77 on the day. Suzuki Pete and Troy, we've reserved 2 seats on Blue Ice for you in case the stealth RIB isn't ready by then!

Probably best to bring a packed lunch as we're likely to be round the back of the island by then, but a visit to the pub is on the cards at some stage!

More info on the race can be found here: www.roundtheisland.org.uk

Hope to see some of you then.

RU coming out for round-the-island race?

Richard
I will be competing in it; 06.30 start, Sail No GBR 7165T, boat name Bullwinkle
Give us a wave (of the arm!) if you see us. We would expect to finish at circa 15.00.
Our spinnaker is purple should we be on that tack when you are around.

John

Great! Even if Suzuki Pete & Troy take us up on our offer, we'll still have a spare bench seat if you need it! It'd be great to see you again. Hope you can make it.

Looking forward to meeting you too, Ashley & Brambles, and hope we will at last meet Ray! Maybe nearer the time we could all swap mobile numbers and make firmer arrangements?
