This weekend, I'll be crewing on a Benetteau 40 taking part in the Swiftsure race out of Victoria - (see NOR here). The boat I'll be crewing on will be skippered by a friend and is named Yikes! - gotta wonder about that. There are a number of races that weekend - the one we'll be doing is out to Cape Flattery and back, which is a mere 104 nautical miles (as the crow flies), compared to just over 140 for the Swiftsure Classic. The forecast is for Westerlies around 20-25 knots. Should be fun.
