The race crew meets on board on Friday evening, with a plan to arrive around 20:00 which gives us time to run through a full safety briefing, get the boat organised and discuss our race strategy and tactics. Friday evening is when we finalise our starting crew positions and set up a buddy and watch system for newer or less experienced crew members.
With a race start of 09:00, we will leave the dock by 07:00 and head to Cowes for the start – breakfast on the way, as a crew sails on it’s stomach!
Once out of the Solent, we start our watch system early, with a 4 hours on 4 hours off rota in daylight and 3 hour watches at night.
Scheduled to arrive back in the evening – wind permitting, once the boat is sorted out then head off after a fine race weekend.
