Moff Crisis

So.. taking our Skol out yesterday, for the first time this year, in fairly sporty conditions at Kielder, just as I was about to launch, the mast pad exploded and the mast punched its way through the foredeck.

Banbury 2015

Howdy

Hoping to make Banbury in October - hopefully my first CVRDA event - can I ask a couple of questions?

What's the format of the event?

Do I need insurance cert/measurement cert etc.?

Any other advice?

Moth Sail Insignia

Howdy Approaching re-launch of our scruffy low-cost Skol and have just turned my attention to the rig. Sail will have to do for now but as it stands it has no numbers and no sail insignia.

Re: a bygone age

Fabulous little film - I do the Port Bannatyne - Kyles - Tarbert run a couple of times a year and it's interesting to note how little has changed!

Thanks for sharing!
