Sadly I only made a grammar school!

and as for Cavalier attitudes to Health and Safety - it is the danger and excitement which attracts me to this event!

Now I know many of you are completely obsessed with rules, regulations and safety.

So for the record, an Officer of the Day has been appointed, and from all reports she is blonde, very attractive and highly accomplished in the boat racing world.

A list of safety items and regulations has been produced (and I won't bore myself by reproducing them here) and they are most comprehensive.

I wouldn't say completely obsessed. It does feature highly in my chosen lines of work though

yeah I will be there also except unlike Tim, I have the misfortune of being delegated the safety boat. Probaby something to do with my career as a community support officer.

I have to say I am a great fan of Seawolf ribs. I like the name and the boats look awesome. I was driving into the hamble a few weekends ago with a female professional sailour and she remarked how god damn evil one looked which was just about to tie up on the public jetty in hamble.

I used to own a Carson 900 which I shared with the deauville rally organiser which I beleive is the same hull as your boat.

What a bobby dazzler!
