I'll second that!!! Great fun, lots of laughs, No7 ale in the pub and the wise decision NOT to do race 3!!!

Many thanks to all the team there for the event, will be back in the spring but maybe in something more in keeping with the location than the sandtext scow.

Also........

Seems like we're getting an invite to Spinnaker for next year too, late September. For those who don't know it, Spinnaker is a great club on some gravel pits at Ringwood on the western side of the New Forest!!

I hope you didn't get too confused by some of my last minute decisions when following me out of the Bristol Maze...

Glad you enjoyed it. I think I was right in trying to crack on with the races in case the wind got up! Hope there was someone taking pictures!

I would like to add my thanks to those above, apologies for not staying to give a winner's thank you speech, but Ed was rambling (?) on, as he can, and I had to rush off to see my daughter in Bristol Royal Infirmary
I had a very enjoyable day, shame I had to miss the meal in the pub

My thanks also to Baltic Wharf. Its the first time I have ever swum alongside my boat to stop it from submerging completly. Thanks to Chris B for allowing two fat boys to try and sink the treasured number 6.
A great day.8)

First my apologies for dashing off but had to be back for confernece I was bunking off ( I did go to our room and change out of eds salopettes and Lyns top before re-entering conference, many thanks to both of you and Stu for at least saving me the embarrassment of walking through Bristol in that gear).

And yes I did get some funny7 looks entering the Royal Marriott in that gear.

Many thanks John for chance to helm no 36 and I am very sorry about the mast, still cant really work out how she went, maybe my pipe got caught in the shrouds and you know I would never let that go!!!

I see what you mean about Dock water Stu, my best casual trousers have a rather funny smell this morning ( no9 comments please this is a family forum)

Many thanks to the excellent rescue crews who appeared from nowhere after the mass rollovers and again the great reception we get from Baltic Wharf, what a turnout considering the forecast!!!

You know it was a good weekend when..... you walk into the bathroom to find sails in the bath, wetsuit and spinnaker sheets on the airer and a buoyancy bag in the shower:D

Well done Baltic Wharf and I'll put some of Stu's pictures on the site this week. There's some crying out for good captions too!

Don't get excited about a Merlin Vintage event at Spinnaker - Mervyn Allen has a mental confusion between Shearwater and Spinnaker and it's the CVRDA Shearwater event that's really meant. I spoke to him yesterday about events.

I will. I'm going to lengthen it slightly, as I think they have more space in the mag, and I don't want it to be exactly the same. I'll be doing it later on this afternoon.
