I am very much enjoying the most recent tweak the Blue Ant team have done to this website which is to add a piece of “Captcha” software which keeps out the spam comments. I was getting up to 40 a day offering me Viagra, glamorous underwear, training shoes and all sorts of other tosh. Also those superbly vague and non-committal “compliments” which say things like “This is a brilliant site and I love your work. You make some very interesting points and argue well….”. They are just ‘Phishing’ (as they now call it), hoping you’ll reply so that your IP address and so on can be harvested for nefarious purposes. Anyway, all gone now, so thank you very much, Anthony from Blue Ant.
I have very little so far from the Colne Match except from Dave B who notes that “Cambria performed very well at the Colne Barge Match. After a slow start due to no wind and a strong ebb tide, Cambria didn’t let go her anchor until the last possible moment. She followed the fleet out of the Colne on a shortened course, but didn’t let us down as she sailed through the fleet of ten to finish a creditable second, behind the ever reliable Edme on her home river. It was a long race but as always very spectacular. All the smacks started at 8 o’clock with the barges starting at 8.30am. Unlike most of the races the Colne is a one class race.
