So follow Dirk's link, which you said you already had: http://www.britishpowerboatracingclub.co.uk/ctc.htm

At the top of the page you will see a number of links. You will probably find the links "Cowes Torquay Cowes Course" and "Timetable" most informative. Not too much to ask - but perhaps its how you asked

So after all these goings on - anyone going to watch ?

I am ! - out of Christchurch at 9.15 ish - head to Hurst trying not to get in the way, into the solent - late breakfast / early lunch in Yarmouth then back out to see the C-T- C boats back in from maybe 12.30 ish ( as a guess at return time ? ) .

If anyonce can tell me the expected return time I'd be gratefull ! ( I missed them last year as I was in a queue for petrol in Yarmouth ! )

Just a question. What sort of route could we expect the boats to take when they negotiate tricky headlines. Portland bill springs to mind. Will they take an inland route or will go by way offshore?

I guess whatever they think is fastest/ wont break the boat .......

I'm going to hang around Hurst for the starts & the North Channel Bouy for the return turn in on that Mark & turn back into the Solent at Hurst !

Oh and to see this ;
