Are you pimping yourself out again Nessa?


He might have a shock - it is primarily a training weekend for the CVRDA, Minisails and British Moths...

Being beaten in a 7 minute race by a 1946 Merlin might be too much to bear!

You would have to frisk him for matches and lighter fuel...

On the other hand if you tell him there'll be a bonfire that would guarantee attendance.

(Oh dear - image has just popped up of a burning "wicker man" built from wooden solos, ancient merlins et al, with the head of a vertically challenged erstwhile windsurfer  of this parish appearing through a hatch at intervals as GRF begins to get a little warm and tries tp jump out!

Well thanks for all that, and nessa I'll take a rain check on the wood botherers gathering, much as I'd love to destroy a bunch of flotsam and jetsom on the water and off, my lack of a toe bar prevents it, but, thanks to all the tips I've got lots of things to practise, not least I shall have a go at that sailing without the rudder, using my feet.
And yes I was been facetious about the unnecessary terminology, but you get the picture I trust, athwart ships ffs i know you did it deliberately.. Oh an thanks anyway, it's not wasted, loads of people read this stuff, and would never have skin thick enough to ask, cos everyone know y'all are stuck up yotti anoraks..

GRF it's time, you've posted so many times, sailed so few (comparatively), but now, yes, don the rubber wear, rig up, wade out, and yes, just sail, don't race, just experience the joy that is a thoroughly satisfying, smooth and speed carrying, just enough roll without shipping water, let the sheet run through you fingers, back upright and change hands and sheeting on again and watching the telltails......tack

It's jus practice
