Insurance will be interesting Johno as many of the policies now have a race length stipulated. I had to get a special cover for the Three Kings Race which cam as a surprise. It adds significantly to the entry costs. Sign of the times.

Running a yacht race is bloody expensive! Other sports - like multisport - charge heaps more in relative terms to cover costs but sailing has a (very cool) spirit about it where we all try to keep costs down as much as possible and do as much as we can with what we have got. That is something quite unique to sailing I think (and completely contradicts notions that we are only a sport for elite wealthy) but it also comes at a big headache for volunteer organisers because we don't work in the 'commercially sustainable' zone where entry fees come in.

Any word on the A2B race and how busy it will be for us two handers in the RNI on that start line? When does the Expression of Interest become firm competitors so that we know what to expect?

The expressions of interest for a2B are at

http://www.a2b-race....s/online-entry/

The A2B start is 10 minutes after the RNI, using the same startline.

Just got an email from A2B saying up to 70 boats will be on the line. A2B is limited to 30 boats, RNI is 25 so what are the other 15? Has RNI been increased?

Also Cameron is quoted as looking forward to Pre-race inshore races. What are these?
