doctor diverted

We are sorry for our absence this week: we've been ensuring Bylines, our 35m superyacht, is in readiness for The Doctor.

So imagine our astonishment when race organisers told us late today the course has been changed!

"The race times and direction for The Doctor surf ski world cup have changed due to predicted offshore wind conditions on Saturday," they said.

"The Doctor race on Sat 16th Jan will now run from Port Beach, Fremantle to Rottnest."

Finishing on Rottnest instead of starting from it! That's more like it. Arrival at the beautiful island is, like ten thousand times more preferable than departure.

The start will be outside Salt on the Beach restaurant; the finish is undoubtedly that crescent of sandy kelpy perfection, Thomson Bay.

Stand-ups and paddleboards start at 7am, the female ski paddlers kick off at 8 and the bloke surf ski paddlers depart at 8.30.

The race will soon be on and all the pre-event publicity will be worth it.
