This is where we publish our boat related stories and articles, which range from world circumnavigation to rescue missions, humour and much, much more. So make yourself a coffee and settle yourself down to a good read.
As its name implies it is NOT a race as such but an opportunity to pitch up your vessel amongst others and see how you fair. Participating vessels range in length, design and capability which determines your start time smallest first, with the aim of finishing at about the same time.

Opportunities like this don't come along very often! If you have a life raft, do you know what's in it? This quick vid shows what's contained in a typical life raft and what it's used for. Love from Boatshed Brighton and Nicky's Canvasworks!
Only a week to go until the next auction which takes place from 14-18 April..

What do you do if you have some old cinnamon and raisin bread which had dried out a little, some free range eggs, a tin of cream and a little milk? Make a decent winter pudding - which when its cold can be eaten in slabs as cake!
