I'm starting to get quite excited . . .

Six days out, and the weather forecasts now seem to be hinting at NNW 13 - 14 mph, which should squirt us down Horning Reach nicely, if it turns out to be true.  Not quite so sure about it turning Northerly later in the afternoon, that could be a long tack all the way from Acle to Potter Frown

One small request to Sheque1 and all the wonderful volunteers at HSC  -  last year there were quiet a few newcomers (always good to see), and from the start list, it looks like there are more this year.  At the pre-race briefing last year, there were references to the marks being 'in the usual place', which was a bit confusing for those who had not been in the race before.  I now know where they 'usually' are, but others may not  -  would it be possible to ask for a little more detail on their location to be provided?

Only 36 hours to go until the first boats start, and the weather forecast for Saturday seems to go up by 1 mph each day that I look.

BBC is saying :  19 and 20 mph NNW and Northerly
Met Office says : 15 to 16 mph (gusting 27 mph) NNW all the way through
Both sources say that it won't drop much overnight

At least there should be a good chance of finishing this year  Smile
Some of the boats will be sailing quite fast, it could get pretty exciting!

I'm making my final preparations, and look forward to having the red and white ribbon flapping proudly from the end of my boom  Smile

I'd agree with the wind forecast, but wrap up warm, the temperature forecast for around midnight is only 6C.

Good luck everyone I'll see you at Hickling..

Only supposed to be about 13C during the day so not the warmest but with wind we'll be moving. Smile

Hope to see you at some point Q.

Bit breezy for much aerial video but did manage a short one at Fleet Dyke with some hand held at the mouth too.

I saw Gary go past the Hickling buoy, from the inside of the Janet 3 loaned to us by Martham boats. I was down below recording the times and radioing the times to Horning.
Later ..much later I was at Horning enjoying a muggacoffee when I watched Jeremy Aslan finish..

Much more wind than I expected. Hence many more boats came up Hickling broad first. Wayfarers did extremely well in this year's race..

Sheque1 is not wrong  -  it was much, much later!  Frown
But I finished  Smile   Yippee!

22 hours and 6 minutes, after a couple of times having to wait for a bit until I could tack against the tide;  once at Stokesby (we did the dykes then went to the LBM first, and were a bit early on the tide, so punching it back to Acle); then again near St Benets when returning to Horning in the arly hours, by an annoying clump of trees for over an hour.

He is also right that there was a LOT of wind, it was a bit hairy at times, and very hard work indeed.

We came second in class, which is respectable (especially considering over half our class didn't finish); but I might have done even better if I'd gone to Hickling first  - you never know.

May I express my thanks to all the wonderful volunteers at HSC who were so friendly and welcoming, and do a lot of hard work behind the scenes to make it all happen.

Done the sides on the way out then off to see Q at Hickling, I did shout my sail number to him but he was below so had to resort to my race number for the person listening. Smile

Cracking sail, gunwhales got wet twice otherwise it was kept upright.

Rounded the LBM about 1930

Wind stayed up for us, went V light just after the Ant coming home but not for long.

Crossed the finish line at 2305, 11 hours 55 minutes after starting and 4th in class but considering the 3 in front of me were 3 of the top 4 in the race I consider that a result.

Thanks to all those in the guardships, scorers, galley staff and everyone else that makes this event.
