He might be having a problem with his email - I suggest you give him a call - he's a very nice man and will talk you through it all on the phone if you want -

John

Had a mail from a 3rd party saying he has been in the states and has only just got back.
I will give him a day or so.

Hi again everyone! It seems that everyone was a bit premature with anouncements of huge changes to the RIB racing this year!


Torquay race - Sunday 30th
  1. Race 1 V24 13.00
  2. Race 2 Class III and RIBs 14.30
  3. Champagne and laurels 16.30
There will be practise on the Saturday from 14.00 till 15.00.

The courses for class III and the RIBs is the same so it looks as if all of the plans for 2004 have been dropped at least for Torquay?

Look forward to seeing some of you there!

I think you better look at your race instructions again. Different course from last year. new course goes as far east as Teignmouth exactly what Chris Strictland said in his letter

Hi Jon

Jim at BIBOA has had all sorts of problems with his email ... so if you emailed
"biboa@talk21.com" you will not get a reply! The ISP changed and he can't get in anymore.

Try either calling 01902-372975 or email at ymack@riblines.fsnet.co.uk

Would love to have you out there!

Cookee,

If you're interested, you can see last year's course for Torquay at:

http://www.extremeboat.co.uk/course2003_torquay.htm

I think you'll see it is a lot different to this year.

There is a rough schematic for this year on the BIBOA website at:

http://www.biboa.com/Torquay%20Proposed%20Courses.jpg

Whilst there are still some short laps unfortunately due to the event sponsor, it's still vastly better than last year. Exmouth, Fairlie and Cowes are all truely offshore and Poole has reinstated the Needles race, so racing is definitely getting back to its roots (all be it kicking and screaming ) for RIBs and Offshore!

Miike

Hi Jon,

It is possible that Jim is on holiday (again!)

If so, you can contact the race organisers direct rather than go
through BIBOA ... For Torquay this is

Mike Spinks - michael.spinks1@ntlworld.com

If you don't have any luck, let me know and I'll track them down for you

Mike
