After last years media black hole can we be assured that there will be regular race reporting etc. for those of us stuck at work.

Of course you can Mr Harris, perhaps you could put in an offer of help too, that would be nicer than moaning in an unconstructive manner without even the courtesy to add your name. Next time please email a member of the committee with your concerns, worded in a more appropriate manner.

Indeed it is to be hoped for! We are aiming to produce a daily report (the scribes are already lined-up), along with results. This should be available at several sites,

Rest assured we will be submitting daily reports of the champs. It is often difficult to find the time (and internet connection) to do so but we'll endeavour to keep you up to date during the competition.

does the club have a wireless network or a computer connected to the net? I'm sure a couple of us could gather with a beer and type up a bit of a daily report each day. We did do this last year but couldn't find an internet connection. Also I think it required a fair bit of editing......

Don't worry, it's under control! The Champs organisers are currently asking a selection of the fleet whether they will help out with daily reports, and we will endeavor to get these onto the forum and Y&Y as soon as is possible the following day.

Looe used Sailwave last year so even if you just publish the results to date - a quick few clicks - it would help

You don't have to attend the event to offer to help. Being on the other end of a phone line qualifies.

Alex and Andy I am happy to make some contributions but do not have any sort of mobile typing apparatus except an old Underwood manual in a black plywood box that is not going to be easy to connect to the internet. Also I will not have seen 1st hand what happened at the sharp end. But if you are after a team reporting approach in the bar before we have all got beyond all care?

Thanks David, although I won't be at Looe either, so I'll be the one at home ready to publish! I think Alex has got plans for how to handle things at the Looe end.
