Yes. Not sure of the date as Matt is mid ocean somewhere south of Hawaii. I'll try and find out and post it here.

Probably the best date.

As usual, I'll get far too excited about this race, then get asked to work or something.

Good luck working out a handicap for us Matt, I have no clue how slow we are.

And being a bit of a one-off, there's not a lot to work with.

The designer seems to think his one is faster than a F24 mk1, but we have planing amas and small kids to add to the mix.

3mm ply is no match for 110kg size 11 boots! Anyone know how to fix my foredeck?

Would suggest 20 or 21st, I'm guessing they'll be other rum races and no end of office parties to clash with on the 22nd

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