The events that Andy has described also occured during the whitbread 93/94 round the world race. Absolute chaos with 5000 boats and skippers all thinking they had right of way. Yachts at anchor in the tide, gin palaces charging around at 20 knots, grandad in his wooden yacht doing 3 knots, charter boats with press on board fighting for the best position all trying to be controlled by a dozen RM rigid raiders with blue lights crewed by Police. And through the middle of this lot sailed 12 round the world yachts doing nearly 20 knots we only stayed 10 minutes before deciding the risk of being run down was too great.

Perhaps because the fleet review is a static event and QHM is using 100+ boats to police it and tidal movement is small then it will be safer than previous large events.

I've attended similarly large scale events and just said to everybody please keep an eye out for approaching boats.

Lets not over egg this one. It should be a very good, enjoyable day out with hopefully no incidents!

If your insured, and your insurance company knows.. It is simple.. Have lots of fun.. But, (to keep harping on about summat.. ), If any of the Marshall's haven't told their insurance company, and have an accident, and if it's their fault, and it's them running into me.. Then I am the one who is gonna be furious..

Hopefully QHM will ensure all boats are adequately insured.. etc..

Only if money changes hands.
