Hmm, is that logical?

I mean if they were that easy to remove, might that not suggest you and
they might remove themselves during in high speed (do 4000's do high
speed?) bouts of bouncing wetness..

The covers do come off, of some models, the Primo springs to mind.

But would a cover really put them under that much pressure?

I guess I'd better start thinking of suitable stuff to bring to this show, like
gloves, footstraps, gear bags, ladies hand bags..

A picture paints a thousand words and all that. Chances of the Mrs getting her foot into the strap - slim to none.

Castle Cove is looking a bit greener these days than last time I checked!

I wish Castle Cove had that much space too! I think this
was Ullswater before I bought the boat.

Going on the Saturday, picking up as many freebies as we can.

Most importantly this year i'm going to be watching the Club of the Year announcement ...

In other show news, head up to the NEC next weekend and head over to the indoor pool and try some Kayaking. I'll do my best to get you all soaked! (Free rubber duck to any y&y forumites who give it a try!)
(Offer only valid 27th & 28th Feb as they are the days I am around!)

Sunday on the Supernova stand on and off, drooling over Merlins, looking at Squibs (I presume they are there) and catching up on the Lark stand.

Supercrew Mrs TITB will also be in attendance so after her sailing hibernation I familiarise her again with some of the subtle nuances of the sport. "Pointy bit at the front, flappy stuff above us please, err no I don't know what it does either, yes we *do* need one of those"

I'm hoping to bump into some of you all there. Supernova Nationals white polo shirt, Phantom build, glasses, not much hair....you get the picture.


Like some other things - sailing is more enjoyable when you do it with someone else

Put a tennis ball in each strap before you put the cover on- Problem
solved :)

I will also be hopefully buying a new cover from one of the suppliers.
