No idea if I'll be fit by

No idea if I&;ll be fit by then, but I&;ve submitted an entry request to this intereting yet novel sounding race. Anyone else?

I wouldn't if I was you Nick.

I wouldn&;t if I was you Nick. I detect some April 1st shenanigans going on here.

e.g.
"Full body cover (including a hat) must be worn during the race. There is likelihood that clothing will be soiled during this event. "

Aye, right.

I was caught out by this

I was caught out by this brilliant spoof. I&;ve only ever been to Bass rock once before, in the 1970s you could still get boat trips from North Berwick. Ah well there&;s always North Berwick law.
