I will be available Friday night in Lymington to sound opinions on the most suitable course. Sea Lady cannot take part due to a wrong replacement fuel tank being supplied!

Philip, I have not made any specific arrangements for the Friday or the Saturday. My plan is to sail Sea Lady from Cowes to Lymington on the Thursday. I have a meeting in the Midlands on the Friday. My friend Gordon Spence who has been on many club rallies may be in attendance until I return (About 10pm). I will provide him with a briefing until I arrive. No one so far has said that they will definitely be coming. This is not surprising since I have tried to make the entry as easy as possible - just turn up on the day. Since I cannot get to Lymington until late Friday I cannot organise anything. As for Bembridge, I can only suggest a BBQ at Duver Marina if sufficient interest is shown. I am not working next week so I can arrange pretty much anything if interest is shown. David Bamber

Jonathan Houston has informed me that he is keen to race, but needs some competition to make getting the crew together etc. Is there anyone out there intending to race? Philip Linsell

I am pleased to say that Kerenza will be entering the 2013 ROIW. We should have a crew of 4 and will rest up in Mercury on Friday night making an appearance on the line on Saturday morning. Good Luck all.

Sandy Lady (a 235) is hoping to race weather permitting. I have one crew organised, will probably launch Friday afternoon Beaulieu and spend the night at Yarmouth or possibly anchored in Keyhaven. http://freespace.virgin....james.hamilton/forum.jpg
