With all teams on site or on their way, the tension in Mylor is building. In this ultra competitive development class, it could be these last minute changes and modifications make the difference between podium and tail-ender, so the tweaking will continue right up until the 11:00am start gun on Sunday.

With the Swiss Hydros team posting speeds in excess of 30 knots in training, the reputation of this legendary event can only build further.
