While good, a huge number of those are corporate boats selling spots. I feel like the real 'racing' contingent gets smaller every two years.

Thought it was interesting amidst all the doom and gloom about sailing that the entry for the Fastnet race was full - 340 boats - 5 minutes after entries opened.

Some people are still keen to wear the same kit and not wash for 5 days.
