Rough water training with Neil Holmes

Well that was the plan, but we didn't really pick the best day for it as the weather was absolutely lovely out there today!

Last time I spent the whole session going round the buoys in southampton water, but not being the type to be put off by a bit of sunshine we set of into the teeth of a howling force 2 gale to see how I coped down at the Needles.

The Phantom Evo will do over 80 mph, but a steady 65ish "cruising speed" was plenty for me today. It's amazing how quickly you get to the stage where 50 feels a bit slow though.

Thanks Neil for another enjoyable and educational run out. My trousers have dried out now - hope yours have too!

The decals on that new HO look very nice, much better than the garish flag on mine

Seeing it in a "real" photo for the first time really tempts me to try and negociate to be able to swap mine over!

Bedajim has a smart cowl cover which came from Aus. But then, you'd know that.

Bah - I would take an E-tec with any sort of flag at the moment (except for a certain blue and white one)
