I actually think it was a very good question to raise.
I also looked for some flexibility with regard to the finishing port, until it was pointed out to me that, in a sense, the Jester is a commemorative event ... at which point I fully accepted Ewen's 'rules'/'guidelines' (call 'em what you will ...).

So if I do take part in the Jester, I'll simply land a few miles further up the coast on Canadian soil in the full knowledge that doing so will automatically disqualify me. That would be an acceptable compromise.

Likewise, if anyone wants to start from somewhere else, there's really nothing to stop 'em. It would only ever become an issue if they were to come in first. And as that's as rare a possibility as I can possibly imagine for myself, it really doesn't feature.

Now coming in *last* - that's definitely possible.

Now I'm in a huff.......

OK. Plymouth it is then. But I'm not buying the drink. Dammit, the whole point of the Irish Sea start was to avoid the buying the drink. I'll just probably arrive minutes before the start instead. Or just after the bars close.

What is it that you've done to upset the Americans Colin?

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for upsetting Americans, so the question should be viewed as an opportunity to raise your status.

Note: with my navigation skills I will count myself lucky if I can hit America. So I may join you in Canada or indeed, France.
