Well we Poles should be there to honoured our compatriots :D ; sadly however we will be just home from Fastnet, I believe

Good luck and thanks for letting us all know.

You are welcome to come down yourself, even if Polished Manx cannot make it. I'm sure we would have space for you!

Shadowfax will be there, after Cowes week we are a bit battle scared, physically and mentally ;) , so BoB seems an appropriate return to the front line! Hope to see lots of you there and that the weather is below 30kts of breeze!

This was a great weekend of racing with 3 races in benign conditions on Saturday and 2 races in showers and wind shifts on the Sunday. Results here:

http://www.rafyc.co.uk/afloat/racing.html

There was some very close racing between Sigress and Shadowfax in 2 races of the first day, including a beat to finish where I recall we were overlapped by half a boat length for the whole beat!

On the Sunday we had to be satisfied with competing against the 1/4 tonners and mustang 30s, which put an interesting mix into the race as places were swopped depending on the type of leg - upwind / downwind / reaching etc.
