Good morning from day 3 of the 2011 Half Ton Classic Cup supported by South Boats. The great news is that the sun is shining and Race Officer Rob Lamb has just radioed the competitors to let them know that the Committee Boats are heading out to the race area on Hill Head Plateau and that they currently have 7-8 knots of wind and anticipate starting on time at 10.30.
We’ll be heading out to the race course with our cameras shortly and will update you when ever we can.
I’d just like to take the opportunity to say a very big thank you to our Press Boat driver and provider Carol Ricks who has been doing a great job of looking after me. She went above and beyond the call of duty yesterday by getting the car out and driving me round the Island to follow the boats when it became clear that trying to go by RIB wasn’t practical in the weather conditions. Many thanks Carol!
