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.

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