Back in the boat park.

Post by Michael Brigg » Fri Sep 02, 2016 7:57 pm

I confess I have a poor excuse for non attendance at the national rally (Family commitments and financial restriction) and am glad to see what a good event it was.

Interesting new rules there at the AGM. Nice to see some genuinely attractive designs will be coming through. I thing the Contender and Phantom both look like exciting prospects.

Will there be a full report to follow full of gossip and rumour? Who won the Special prizes, what was the boat you would all take home?

The week-end had a nice silver lining however. The wind was just right for a first decent test run and launching of Torment. A steady force 2 SW breeze allowed a safe launch even heading into the wind. Anything more brings waves such that I must go in up to my neck to launch and than Capsize the boat while I run the Trolley up the beach!

All the pics are here...

Loveley pics, takes me back a while...How are you doing the jib sheets? Mine went to the end of the seat so when you tacked the seat the jib sheet was partly tensioned as well and then you did the rest from the seat after the tack.

I'm currently babysitting the IC nationals up here. Interesting boats that fall over a lot!

Also interestingly the non-assymetric boats are just as quick as those carrying kites, the first half dozen spots being filled by non-kite boats.

Worlds up here next year.

I'm not sure I actually did anything!

Seems to me like the bug may have already bitten... :twisted:
