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..

A 10mph Easterly would be pretty bad news  -  especially as I really, really want to actually finish this year.

But it's changing already, and depends on which site (and therefore underlying algorithms) you look at.  On the BBC Weather, I'm currently seeing 15mph NNW, which is much better.  But there is a big weather system sweeping through between now and then, with a low pressure area probably moving W to E somewhere north of Scotland over next weekend.  Exactly how and when it moves, let alone what will happen at what speed afterwards, will stretch even the biggest of meteorological super-computers.  

Looking at forecasts this time next week, when the race is around five days away, is much more likely to give a valid indication.

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?
