Re: Banbury 8th October

Thanks to all at Banbury SC for another great meeting. A slight lack of water in the pond restricted the playing field, but the Race Officer's depth sounding was spot on with the shallows marked, and I managed to keep clear of the mud all day. With a few unpredictable windshifts thrown in, we had so...

Re: Old Enterprise sail

I've got a small roll of blue sailcloth that I use for patching etc. Its about 2' wide. I might also have some well faded pieces from an old pacer jib if i can find them in the loft. Going to Hunts so i will bring what i find.

Re: Aldeburgh YC 3rd and 4th September 2016

Re: National Rally - who is coming?

Can you save me space for a campervan please? I will be travelling down on Saturday morning.
Bringing Dolly the Sprite for me and the Magnum7 for Tom. Should be fun as he's not raced a moth for at least 20 years!

Re: Roadford 16th -17th July

Thanks to all at Roadford for a great weekend. Good racing on Saturday, sadly no wind on Sunday morning so Alan W came up with a novel team building exercise - How many people does it take to make a Flying Fifteen fly? The answer appropriately, 15, all complaining about bad backs, plus a few more to...

Re: UnSkol gets a newbottom...

Would some righting lines fastened under the gunwales help? They seem to help on Solos which suffer also from too much side buoyancy. I have seen them anchored near the shroud points then led around to a Velcro fixing at the transom which can be pulled free. A rope step fashioned at the right length...

Re: Moth wing attachment

Ahaaaa! that's where they went. We suspected they might go to a Minisailor needing a bit more leverage :wink: Spiderman won the other bits for a future project. The simplest mounting for the inboard end is a vertical Ali plate shaped with ears to slot the tube over. I will add a photo of the magnum ...

Re: Wanted - International lowrider Moth

Ah, good. I remember seeing that boat on our walk to the pub, looked tatty but with some effort would be a quick machine.

Plenty of help available Henry, both here and on lowrider page, approved yesterday!

Hi Nessa,
Are you thinking of a blue Axeman that looked abandoned in the trailer park at Hunts?

Re: Baltic Warf, April 9th

Thanks to all at Baltic Wharf for an exciting and friendly day's racing. A pity that more couldn't have made it as there was plenty of wind all the way for the heads of the harbour race, although it did get a bit shifty in the middle section. A dead run most of the way down the harbour made for a wo...
