We'll be afloat for the start and follow them up to Hurst....

Then return to cowes for a top up, return to station and change the fuel filters on the tractor.

Hurst castle varies as the start is staggered by class...
J.P. Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race 2011 - The course
gives you all the info you want...

Hurst Point: 0730 - 1030

best viewing can vary according to wind - but the three places I think are most fun are:
- needles (esp. yachts going through!)
- Bouy off Bembridge - sole bouy marker - giving a lot of boats all heading for one tiny point - chaos and a lot of fun!
- Ryde: Ryde sands usually claim some casualties

enjoy - I might come next year - best fun race I have ever done in a yacht, but would like to see from a rib as well...

I'm hoping to be there. I have been planning to go since about May when the H2O show on Solent Radio started plugging it. Should be a great sight.

Planning to leave Poole about 05:30 and hope to be off the Needles in time to see the fleet go by. Weather and wind permitting.

Boris,

Put the boat in the water last night, fueled up and ready to go. Up today at 05:00. Blowing a force 4-5, drizzle and overcast, checked the weather forecast and decided to go back to bed!

Good for the race but not so good for the spectator boats.

Maybe next year?
