Perhaps this will shake up the yachting elite that think they run cowes and the waters around it, the racing is only set up there so all the older gentlemen can watch it from there leather studded armchairs in the various club along the esplanade. You could argue about the business they bring in equally, how much do they cost us.

Probably have to cut up his club tie & buy the pink gins for the rest of the year. Possibly get a stern "Harrrumphing" at in the bar. It all depends if he's a member of the same club as the judge.

The answer's simple... No tawdry commercial traffic to be allowed in the Solent during Cowes week to interfere with the yachting. Baaa! Anything without a sail should be sunk by the guardships. Sent from my leather studded chair from the RYC balcony whist sipping my 10th pink gin by my secretary

There are plenty of places the yachts can race, but they all gravitate to the cowes entrance for obvious reasons, there is a rumour about dredging part of the Solent for shipping which will ease the congestion, the yaghties need to get rid of there elitist attitude, they never want to talk or say hello to us "stink boats" until they've run onto a bank or need a tow.
I've had a yachts swearing blue thunder at me cause I was in front of him doing a photo shoot, he was ranting about disturbed water and wind, really funny really as I had the owner of the boat doing his own photos from my boat, he told me just carry on and we will see him later,,, his face was a picture later that day

That is the maximum sentence for the breaking the Col. Regs. BUT only if tried with a Jury. Summary conviction in the Magistrates' Court (as per this case) carries a maximum 5000 fine on each charge. + Costs + Victim Surcharge.
