They've just had one on their Northern Tour- YDSC.... got good numbers too, considering it's still winter up there.

Should have clarified, I meant training/coaching event rather than Open Meeting.

Had a good chat to the Aero own at Hunts over the weekend, he is keen to get some coaching but it is all on the south coast apparently, perhaps the CA might want to consider having an event in the midlands and further north? I know there are a few at Alton Water that might be willing to host a day (just a thought).

He has also promised me a go when he is next at the club on a weekend and I am there.

Mostly let the kicker off DDW in the 300... Just a matter of confidence.

Downwind i usually have some kicker on but not huge amounts. Remember to dump it in 25 knots plus before the gybe though or its endo time!

I was impressed with Chunky's video....  how long did he survive? Must have been over a minute or so....

I'd firmly be nursing crap coffee and limp bacon rolls in those conditions (assuming I'd left the windsurf kit in the shed, or there wasn't a starbucks nearby )
