yep totally frustrating.... booked Sunday or Monday for a coastal dash for months, now no wind forecast anywhere drivable.  I'll head to Oxford SC to check it out on Sunday- gets me out of meeting up with the inlaws at least.

The alternative at our place seems to be an increasing number of SUP riders paddling off down the coast for their exercise.

I must try this SUP business one day - I can't see why it is better than sitting down and paddling?

The alternative our way is resign oneself to a non-sailable hangover.... fortunately Malmaison has obliged with a cheap room saturday night, the monkeys are farmed out and what was going to be a sober meal with wife and friends before a dawn raid to the south coast, is getting turned into some intense consumption of Rennie and Nurofen on sunday morning following the inevitable lash-up on no-wind weekends.

Sailing would be a healthier pastime.... but binge drinking and extravagant food is at least more socially acceptable.

Well last weekend I finally got out there. Practice on Saturday and racing on Sunday. I have been unable to sail so far this year because of physical incapacity and unsailable wind, for me at least. On Sunday I bashed round the reser. for three hours racing at the back of the fleet with the same polite gentlemen I always do. Very enjoyable even the insulting remarks from the 'former boy' when he was coming back as I was going up.

Bit stiff now though.......

Graeme you do realise that your open day is the same weekend as THE BIGGEST dinghy handicap open of the year don't you?  Rodney really wants me to go, but i am struggling as the whole family had planned to come up to the Lord Birkett this year and i am right in the dog house for even suggesting i cant go.

It will be roasting up there Jimbo, the most stunning scenery, great part, beer and friends and the sailing aint bad either.  You should do it at least once mate, its a celebration of all that remains great in this sport.

EDIT* It may not be my decision to make, the wife wants to come with the kids then i am sorry the decision will of been made for me

Same weekend as the biggest Nationals of the year, too...

Well, the biggest (only) Nationals at Whitefriars, anyway!
