Spare a thought from noon on Sunday for the 30 entries taking part in one of the toughest yacht races ever - the Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race - as it leaves Cowes and heads clockwise around the Isle of Wight in the first stage of this record-breaking race.
Racing was abandoned on Sunday on safety grounds, but crews were able to take place in the Newport Regatta on Saturday.
