Cowes Powerboat Festival or Farce??

It is Cowes Powerboat Festival this Friday through Sunday.

I want to go and see what is going on. I understand there is the Cowes Torquay Cowes race and other classes racing of on other courses.

Can I find any info?? Can I buggery. All I can find is the start time of the C-T-C race, and no mention of where the sart is!

This is a complete shambles.

Why don't the organisers make he programme easily accessible, or is it just for competitors.

In 2007, there was full info on the web and we had a super weekend with loads of friends.

Am I missing something, or are the organisers not switched on!!!

Perhaps you should brush up on your googling skills instead of ranting!

Before being rude, I suggest you read the post.

The link you give is to the C-T-C race. I have that!

What else is going on???

Dirk,

I am fully aware of the powers of google.

I have 'googled' extensively.

And there is no need for rudeness on these fora.

All I want to have is a schedule of th various races and locations. Not too much to ask, is it.
