Not a bad morning here in Milton Keynes, a few dusty heads but most of the skippers are ready to go.
Seeding races start in an hour or so but with a few drop outs, including John Tushingham we are down to three fleets so the challenge is not as great for those at the pointy end of the fleet.
Skippers to watch are current National champ Craig Richards, Dave Potter has faired well so far this season along with John Taylor. Others such as Nigel Brown, John Brierley, Peter Baldwin, Buzz Coleman and Ken Binks should be able to mount a good challenge if they get their heads round the job.
I think any one of maybe six skippers could end up with the pot at the end of the weekend, good luck to all that are entered.
