As for the RS100... Obviously I'm the only one who got shot quick when reality struck, nice to know if I'd kept sailing it I would be inland champion this year (10.2)

Two of us got out quick JB .... Man up and take the flack as only a man with a pink boat could ...... Nice to see ur getting a boat with a bow that doesn't resemble a wardrobe ... Could you have found taste so late in life ...... Naaaaaa LOL

Fun toy and a pleasure to own- the only brief I expect from it!

Another good one today, literally gave the lead away up the last beat, in my total arrogance of not slapping a cover on what should have been a loser tack to a laser, but got my best handicap result to date of 5th, I'd been dicing with the Laser exchanging the lead back and forth most of the race once the young upstarts in the absurdly well sailed Miracle were put back in their box.
Then as I'm bunging it on the trailer a load of fishing line and the bait bucket I'd been towing for heaven knows how long appeared trailing off the tiller, which could explain why my sailing genius somehow failed to shine through..
Whatever, Topper girl didn't nail me this week and the sun shone and the wind blew on the righteous once more.. excellent day.

We just had squalls with dead bits inbetween. Not such a cracking day!

After last week's horribleness, I'm glad to say today was just lovely. Had friends over, and their 2 small children got their first taste of sailing, in a 2000, with my wife helming, their dad childminding and my daughter entertaining. Meanwhile, rupertson and I had given the Lightnings a good going over in the morning, ready for the Open next weekend, and then had a great sail in the afternoon, playing around and dropping in on the others in the 2000.

What a sunny day was designed for.

We had a great day yesterday, the second Back On the Water session, and 14 boats turned out, a slightly different 14 from the first Saturday so it bodes well for the season ahead. 

Today was crappy, no wind at all so I just did maintenance chores.  Useful, but dull.
the same, but different...
