    Default The Holmes Race

    Anyone looking for an extra crew member?

    Can commit to practise between now and then on weekends.

    Can do any position after a few sessions learning boat, or I could be Navman.

    Will be rail meat if needs must,

    Steve

    Nobody takes the Holms Race that seriously. Well, maybe some CBYC people might. Best bet is to contact them if you want to crew. Much more fun to just enter your own boat and have a crack though!

    Currently boatless which is why I am looking for a crew position.

    Itís pretty much the same boats every year (pcc and cbyc fleets) and I donít think any/many of the skippers of those boats are in here. Call the clubs and iím sure youíll be sorted out. Itís pretty informal racing.

    I took it seriously! Went over one year, got drunk, overslept, missed my booked lock, started much later than planned, came in sixth, fastest boat from CYC. The next year, everything went to plan, didn't even make it to Flatholm!
