The dreaded 'forum creep'  Smile it's what makes most forums more like a conversation in the pub than Question Time on the BBC.

Isn't that the general idea with a trap boat? I thought they were supposed to be easier on the knees..

Back to the show, whilst it's looking pretty crap everywhere else we seem to be getting clearer here in the South East.

Best wishes for show organisers, driving was dreadful earlier and it's going to get worse.

I have messaged @dinghyshow to see if, due to the weather and possible train cancellations, Saturday tickets can be used on Sunday. So far I haven't had any response.

The National 12s had planned to display a brand new (not sailed yet) Dead Cat Bounce but due to the road conditions they've now pulled out from the show completely. A shame, but saves a possible road incident with a new dinghy.
