The Squib class reached the symbolic one hundred entries today, making it easily the biggest class at Lendy Cowes Week.

Class Chairman Nigel Grogan said, "Holding our Nationals during Lendy Cowes Week was a bold decision, but seems to have paid off with this scale of support. Free spinnakers courtesy of the very generous support or our sponsor aql have undeniably also made an impact on entries."

We will be running all the news from Lendy Cowes Week and also be writing a Squib feature on what will undoubtably be the highlight of the event.
