I thought I had rushed it :shock:

I do miss my Finn! I will get another one some day. Rupert is right - they just feel right - what was the comment - why is such a heavy slow boat so fast?

British moth to sell first. I have a new job nearer home so will no longer be mothing on the river in Oxford on Wednesday evenings... I will miss that too, but not as much as I have hated the commute into Oxford every day!

Unlike Rupert I'm the right size for a Finn.

John, at the end of work party today we had a bit of a sort out of 12, Trio and Contender, as they were struggling with covers staying on and trollies staying under. Back OK for the time being, but might be worth a look. The12 trolley looks like something has happened to the chocks on one side.
