Emma Hamilton will be there on Sunday hopefully for the weekend if I can twist my crews arm far enough!

Had to retire Emma H just before Yarmouth after the dolphin striker cable failed resulting in a very bent main beam and a cracked beam socket in the starboard hull! Absolutely gutted we where on the tail of the 3rd place vx40 at the time. ( A Hobie Tiger from Calshot cats went round in 5hrs 30mins)

Hi david
Dawn is fighting our case already, unfortunatly we where turned down at Saturdays committee meeting as they consider Emma to be to big.

Alan, what happened to the Ok's at Calshot this weekend didn't see any on the water, but then again maybe it because I was busy trying to play pick up sticks with 3 bits of broken mast[:(!][:(!][:(!] http://s6.photobucket.com/albums/y203/premiercc/th_towedback.jpg http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y2...
