Today’s race results published along with latest Points Series.
Today’s results published.
86 starters this morning. Showers and sunny patches during start. Spinnakers flying up the east side of Lismore. No recalls for the first time – well mannered fleet! The Yeoman Bridge had a good view of the start.
We do not know if these vehicles are anything to do with the WHYW fleet, but if any of you are the owner/s of Toyota Yaris SL14 JHO or Citron Berlingo SM09 XZL which are blocking the access to the Seafood Temple bin (due to be emptied first thing Wednesday morning and is at present completely blocked), but if so, if they are not removed by Tuesday afternoon they will have no choice but to contact the police and report the said vehicles for obstruction.
86 starters today. Fleet finished just before the rain came!
Clue 43 should be 8 letters, not 9. Clue 16 should be 6 letters, and clue 67 should be 6,5. Sorry !
And, yes, clue 64 is a repeat of 22!
25 yachts started the feeder race from Oban this morning.
Seven yachts started this morning from Gigha. Should have a fast passage, if a little wet.
