Ive talked about this event with a bunch of people and all report to as being a hugely fun thing to do, so I'm keen to give it  try (subject to kids sports programmes etc etc).

What other multis are keen to join in on this but need a bit off encouragement to join in.?

If any of the smaller racers/8.5s want to give it a go but don't want to carry boom tents, cooking sh*t etc etc  or even venture below their own boats to sleep the VB will have a few spare bunks. Hey, we could even offer to carry all of your food/beer/rum if you are concerned about displacement.

Or maybe even try to get a few other slower cruisers like us to partner up with a race boat or two and make a team event out of it....

 

Discuss..

It is a ripper and very well organised.

Very highly recommended.

The GBE is intending to do it.

I could be convinced - won't be very quick though!

That will be both of us at the back of the fleet then, maybe you could have a word with the handicappers.

I maybe need to start thinking about making some downwind sails before then, if I do it will be a guaranteed upwind event.

Unfortunately I'm out.  Just realised that it's my turn to entertain the yobs I used to knock round with at school on the 10th
