For anyone who is out, Cowes Torquay race and Cowes Poole race.

Starts are 09.00 and 09.15 from the squadron line (i believe)

love to see some pic if anyone is out.

+1, especially as I am at work today.

(sadly) looked at AIS & the Solent about 2 hours ago & saw BAR3 doing 48.9knots round calshot......is BAR3 a Ben Ainsley foil cat or a power boat in Cowes Torquay, difficult to tell nowadays!?

i know they are fast but the lack of wind down here would make it really something special!!

was at Saxon this morning and there were a few tasty boats heading out from drivers wharf... might look to go down to leap tomorrow morning to see them go.

thank you, much appreciated.

they have the Yellow brick trackers so if you have the app apparently you can follow them
