Any tips for tomorrow? I'm thinking it may be a bit windy for the number one.

 

And what time for the last finisher?  Wind should hold, so could be all done by midnight hopefully...

 

Good luck to all!

I wouldn't leave that #1 at home, some of the forecasts have looked like lightening off later.

Go the pies!

That would be a Bacon and Egg pie for us .. looking at the early forecast you can pick that the wind is gonna blow on your pies! 

 

Short haul course looks great:

Pretty epic start conditions today - the first division got away ok but a fairly vicious squall came through soon afterwards and passed through the Shorthaul fleet before catching quite a few of the Longhaul boats.
Took a few snaps, wish I had a better camera but gives an idea of the change in conditions.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats
