IOW Round the Island Yacht Race

This took place today, and we thought we'd go and watch it from Culver Down. You can see both North and South from there, so we thought it'd be good.
When we got there it was almost all over. Whilst we were there we saw the last few going round the headland.

There is a goodish space to walk the dogs up there so we took them alonng too.

It was very very windy.....attested to by the fact that the record was broken by 12 minutes. They started off at 6am this morning and by 10am the winner was in. The stragglers were still going by our beach at 3.15pm, with still about 8 miles (sorry...don't do Knots!) left to go to reach Cowes and the finishing line.

Over 1700 yachts took part.
