Regularly usually means the even letters (sometimes the odd ones)

vErY sOoTy gives EYOT, the second small island today!

This one is LAYETTES - anagram of Seattle and y (unknown). Layettes are clothing, etc for a newborn child.

Hi Chaz.

CLOSE(ending) + ALL(everyone) in CS (ClasS with the middle letters taken out).

I can't explain this one. Which letters have you got from other clues?

Wheel comparatively slack (5)
I?U?R....the U might be wrong
I think this could be IDLER - 2 meanings of word - slacker and idle wheel?

thanks guys...I'm sticking with close calls now.
I had considered idler too but my dad thought inner. do you think SLIP ON ROPE AND I'LL GET THE BLAME (4-3) is Full-pay? If it is then idler fits
