Do you know if there's anything shorebased on Sunday evening in connection with the race?
Yeah, the forecast is now looking slightly better for Sunday, so Sea Drive might make it onto the water afterall....

I think there is an event on the Sunday evening, but I think it's an invite only thing + I am not sure anyone can go down and have a look at the boats either since it's all in a secure area of the port at Pembroke.
Will ask around at work today and see what's happening if I can.

Just got back from watching the start. Was quite a spectacular sight watching all those boats razzing along the seafront! Three boats came back to Gunwharf with problems, the first being Ocean Pirate the big cruiser. They seemed to think they'd hit the submarine barrier and lost one of their props. The other two are down in the marina now frantically trying to fix their problems! Must be gutting if you've spent all that time and money on a project for it to fall apart literally at the last second. Pics to follow....

PS. Forgot to mention the HOT Silverline girls on the pontoon! Anyone get any pics

Was on a different Media Boat...HMS Gloucester...thanks to the Royal Navy. Just as well I had a big lens as the competitors passed closer to the shore at Gilkicker Point than us.
10 mins after the start it looks like Fabio Guzzi has problems as he stopped having creamed through the fleet after a conservative start.

First start had the spectator boats 'racing' alongside the competitors down the Solent. The organisers thought this to be dangerous so moved the start point from off Southsea to Gilkicker for the 2nd start. No doubt the spectators at Southsea were a bit hacked off with that as there seemed to be a large crowd there.

Did they retire? I saw a large red racing boat from a distance being lifted out at Gosport Marina at around lunch time.

Rumor has it that Fabio Buzzi hit a submarine barrier…
