It's that time of year again. June has come around and preparations are in hand for the Civil Service Offshore Racing Club's (CSORC) entry in the Civil Service Inter-Departmental Offshore Regatta. OK, that's the acronyms out of the way.
On Sunday the crew assemble at Port Solent and take over our allotted Sunfast 37 for the next five days. We shall be preparing the boat prior to departing for the Solent on Monday for some practice. There's a practice race off Cowes at 16:00, then we go into Cowes for a skipper's briefing.
Racing proper starts on Tuesday with a long and short inshore race. We shall be posting updates as they happen (wifi permitting).
