Re: Last event of the year

I will be there. Not sure if it will be the Hit or make my day more difficult with the Swift. Hopefully more boats than last time? Giles

Re: Swift restoration

Great to see her on the water. I went to Roadford last weekend to test 339 and was very surprised how good she was. The wind was pretty strong and I was able to fly a hull , without anything breaking whilst sailing single-handed Sorry no photos. Looking forward to the Swift Nationals at either Roadf...

Re: swift Cat.

Its only one now Peter!
There was a good mast, rudders and a few fixings but the rest of the fibreglass hulls etc was shot to bits.
Think I'll stick with what I have. But thanks for the thought.

Re: Clywedog 9-10th July

I will definately be coming, Kate has a choir thing on Sunday so can't attend. I will either bring the Swift catamaran if this is allowed at Clywedog and I have finished the mast bits and bobs or the Hit. Cassie and I will be in the small camper van Look forward to seeing you all, hopefully arriving...

Re: Staunton Harold in June

I got home and realised that I had left one of my thermos cups, the red one , somewhere at the club. I may well have reversed over it in the van!! or left it in the boat park. If found it is not a bomb but is probably full of tea, now cold.

Re: Staunton Harold in June

Thanks to Peter and Jane for a lovely weekend largely due to their enormous input.Kate thought I had been abroad, it must have been sunnier than I thought.
Great to see all of the minisails especially the ones from abroad. I hope the trip back to Belgium goes OK.
I hope to see you at Clywedog.

Re: Staunton Harold in June

Pete
There is the slightest possibility that the Swift may be ready (or nearly) for this weekend. Looking at the club details am I right in thinking that the handicap for the Swift allows it to be sailed at your club?? If not it will be the Hit.
