Cookee,

Do you know what the plans are for spectator boats ?? There is nothing on the Harbour Authority Notice to Mariners yet.

I will almost certainly be around that weekend and if appropriate can offer a couple of seats if anyone is interested.

Cheers

Mike

Hi Mike don't know what the plans are for the race boats yet! I would try the RYA nearer the time or the Harbour / port office for more information, but I would leave it untill the week before the event as things change quite quickly!

RYA - 0845 3450400

Look forward to seeing you there,

Update.

The Sunday race has now been reclassified as a National race which means that day licences are not valid. However John Puddifoot has agreed to provide a provisional National licence for the lucky person at the same price as a day licence. The cost of this is 50 + 10 for the insurance. In addition to this a medical will be required which can be carried out by your GP, I will find a way of getting the form to whoever succeeds but if you are confident then it might be prudent to book a medical with your GP!

I will provide a helmet complete with intercoms and all the training required, I hope we can fit you into a pair of Grahams overalls otherwise we may have to "borrow" a pair! We will of course provide you with a race lifejacket for the event as well.

The lucky "winner" is welcome to spend as much time with the team as he or she wishes, and we will be arriving in Cardiff at around lunchtime on the Thursday and leaving on Sunday to return to Devon.

I hope the above is clear enough for everybody to understand, if you have any questions feel free to PM or email me direct.

I have Had the pleasure

I is sssooooo good it has to be experanced to be belived... I only had a quick spin off of cowes , and not in race......its good, infact its really good,
I was always slightly puzzeled why cookee was into racing ribs, as it seem a little bit of a waste of a rib 'just' to race it.
but getting the helmet on , sitting down low into the cockpit , and wedging yourself in , with the GPS and some engine guages and controles in front of you is cool, I would guess like a small race car......

And then the engine is rumbling right behind you.... I must say the pick up is V slow , but its all about top speed after about 28 knots the prop starts griping properly and you know you are in for it then you can feel cookee controling the foot throttle , as you race towards 65+ mph and when you hit a wave ...... you just fly forever, before crashing into the next big one, and getting launched again...... I think the prop is in most of the time because the speed never drops .... ITS GREAT ... the other big thrill is other RIBS along side......... I would love to do A race

I saw 68mph on the GPS and I think we were against the tide too

I now know why cookee races ....

Thanks again Cookee
