would be interesting to do a timed run...
where's the official start finish line if there is one?
I'd guess the likely official start would be the RYS start line at Cowes.

We used a buoy of egypt point. Interesting about St Catherines as we stuffed it twice (done the whole of RB8 without ) Probablly backed off to much, may of gone over the top of the stange waves that occur there if we kept the speed up.

I make it 48.9nm so you must have been doing over 50 knots Average speed Cookee..

Hmmm I don't think I will beat that in my rib. Perhaps we could run some classes based on Length and HP

I think the race distance is actually a bit more than that - the fastest one we did we were hitting 70mph all the way round the South side of the island and we were within 1/2 an mph of another boat, very thrilling!
