Big air at the needles! Solent spin antics

Hi

As Andy has mentioned in other threads, we got some good photos down at the needles. Andy used the standing waves to ramp the boat up a bit. Thanks to Daniel for the use of his boat as a photo platform!

I've not had time to do them all for the website yet, but here are the airborne shots

Boat looks nicely balanced - shows the advantage of having the console quite far forward - no sign of any pitch poling that so many boats seem to suffer from when they get airborne!!!
