Cowes-Torquay-Cowes race

This race is set for Saturday as far as I know, there has been very little publicity so does anyone know more? Start times- finish times? Start and finish line?

I understand that the boats will leave Cowes at 9:30 and the start line is at the Needdles

How long does it normally take before the front runners get back?

It's 180 miles, so around 2.5 - 3 hours

Cool-the Cat race I'm doing safety boat for should all be on the other side of the island by then. I didn't much like the idea of 30+ cats coming through Hurst at the same time in the opposite direction.

D'oh...specially as I got the days muddled up and thought the Cat race was Saturday but it's not...

Must Not get confused by bank holidays

I went to watch this , but couldn't get the motor to start ! After 2.5 hours of trying it fired up and ran fine all day. Thoughts seem to be a relay sticking - so got to Yarmouth fuelled up - as we came out saw a few scream past . We were doing 50knts and its like we were stood still ! Awsome . Glad I dont pay the petrol bill for them though !
