Round the Island - Changing Skies

Round the Island - Changing Skies
LR-7427 - Got up late 05:00, plan A, was to start at Cowes and drive around the island following the leading boats, ops that went wrong then, was meant to be up at 04:00. Yep mad,crazy insane.
There are a few hundred floating around on my cloud storage, but I'll try not to bore you with a barrage of yachts of all shapes and sizes and the occasional wind surfer. PS Still got more scarecrows to :)

The annual J.P. Morgan Asset Management Round the Island Race, organised by the Island Sailing Club, is a one-day yacht race around the Isle of Wight, an island situated off the south coast of England. This 1,459 boats entered the race with around 16,000 sailors.

The year the race was won by Sir Ben Ainslie’s 45ft America’s Cup catamaran J.P. Morgan BAR stormed round the Island in 2 hours 52 minutes 15 seconds, carving more than 16 minutes off the record time set by Francis Joyon in 2001.
