Hi Andy
How do you feel about car sharing to Roadford?

Alan,

We could talk about it over a beer or two?

This did indeed happen (briefly) at the WSC meeting just: I think Rupert found the power available awesome! :shock: (So do I but at my weight I shouldn't :oops: - but that's another story).

OK, I think, Rupert?

Given that it was about a force 1/2 gust and for a couple of seconds I could hike right out, I think they might be fairly powerful! Must borrow it again with the traveller working in a (bit) more of a breeze!
OKs do appeal, having played in Alan's a few years ago (again, in very light winds) but I think for the time being I am going to have to get the Tonic mended and play with that at Whitefriars, and the newly qualifying Mirror and Saskia at cvrda meetings.

I still have the 'ladies' Finn rig if required - ideal for the smaller Finn sailor.

Are you calling me a girl? :(
Actually, I think one of the problems for me with the Finn would just be the scale of everything. I don't know how Peter manages (less of a girl than me, I guess!) but everything feels like it was designed for a big person, not just the sail. Which I guess it was, with the Europe being the equivelent boat for little people! And girls!
