I'll definitely buy you a beer Ian - did you end up out there waiting for us, or were you called off before you got out?

Was out about 11-00, waiting, sorting out a position and got a phone call to say the race start was delayed by an hour ( somebody still in bed ???) then at 12.00 had a phone call to say that all had been cancelled, so i packed up me tow rope and went home.

Sorry you guys got all the way out there before being told it was cancelled. I guess you have to be there before they can start. My thanks also for getting out!

Lyme bay was supposed to be a 3 with slight seas! Can anyone confirm or deny?

From Portland to Cowes was S***! We managed to bend a trim tab support in the muster area .. so it would have been a very interesting start!

I don't know if Dave Deacon made it onto local TV, but down near Portland they managed to stuff Hot Lemon and break the windshield, spraying glass all over Dave and cutting him up pretty bad.

I hope you all had a less eventful day

It was not a problem to be out there, as by looking at the sea's around Torquay and Brixham we thought it would run, 1ft maybe 18 inch swell, visibilty must have been 10 mile +. what a good day for a race i just wondering if it was anything like Exemouth (around Cowes), they cancelled that one 18 / 20 ft waves.

Yeah great isn't it - you're doing someone (well ok a lot of people) a favour and you break the boat and yourself!

All the best to Dave for a speedy recovery, and if we can ever be of any help in Devon, just ask!

Went across Lyme Bay Monday c11am with conditions much the same as Sunday and it was very rough with large confused seas. Materially eased towards Torbay/Dartmouth area which accords with Ian's report.
