Excellent!
what the hell were they thinking? Running that close to shore with a fixed keel boat? Just asking for trouble. I take it they were on a race but why risk running aground?

I have seen that before - always makes me laugh though.

Looking at the charts a dangerous rock with depth of 6ft IS marked - maybe there should be a buoy over it in such busy waters?

Having said that everyone should be aware that headlands often continue quite a distance underwater!!!

Round the island race 2006

That was during the last RTIR and that was the first boat to hit the Varvassi wreck. http://www.needles.shalfleet.net/varvassi/

When we went through the gap (having all agreed that we wouldn't!) there were two boats stuck on it at that point - the noise as they hit the boilers of the wreck is pretty impressive!

Didn't see a wreck marked on my Bluechart - will check when I get home - isn't there a buoy or something to mark it?

Oh, you know, the one where drysuits and silly hats are banned, and shorts and shades are compulsory.

It's the one that JK secretly lusts after!

OK ,what the hell is a 'Poker' run? As it's listed under the cruise section I assume it's a race or a blast or whatever but there's loads of talk about go kart racing as well Either way there's nothing planned this year till June! Hell even Mollers get's his boat out the barn before then.
