I've just read that the date for the 2019 Holms Race has been announced as being 14th September. I don't have a gig. Unfortunately, I don't have a boat in the Bristol Channel anymore either.
On the other hand, you never know what opportunities may arise, so I might just pencil out the date in my diary anyway.
Meanwhile, as it's otherwise a slow news day, I thought I'd just repost some photos taken the first time Dad and I entered Calstar in the race back 2015.
