Superb and thanks for the updates early on. Your build up and description of the race with your good self at the Hickling mark more than often really bring the river system to life in whatever the elements might deliver over a day and night of the actual race. Hardy competitors you tick them off in the wee small hours in the dark broad round the mark. And a urn of coffee with a roll from the galley does you well of a day, I think the competition doesn’t know how lucky they are you not hanging off a trapeze round the course.

They'll  be very glad with me not hanging off a trapeze...



With my weight we'd capsize and block the river..



Thanks.  Smile

Entries are officially closed, but unofficially, a bit of groveling might still get your entry in...

I've just had the start order, and it's an interesting mix-up.

The slightly slower 'production cruisers' are sandwiched between the half-deckers/yeaomans and the Norfolk Punts.  I wonder how far I'll get before I'm overtaken by boats in the next group?  Maybe the downstream fence of the Swan, perhaps?

With Low Water down past Stokesby around 18.00 (time of L.W. depends on how far downriver the mark is), there won't be many boats who can make it to Hickling & back first  -  but I expect most will do the two dykes at the beginning;  that could mean it gets very crowded at Ludham Bridge around 13.00 to 14.00.

I agree, though some punts and A raters might make a break for it to Hickling first if there's enough wind. they are so "on the water" rather than "in the water" tide has less influence on them.

12 days to go and the long range forecast is in, Easterly 10mph for the whole race, with a maximum temperature of 13C.

Not that good on either count,  an easterly is over the houses on the left of the first straight and you'd need to tack occasionally..  Very little tide for the start though. I could see 100+ boats tacking in the first half mile of river if the forecast doesn't change..
