Yeah! Conditions certainly focussed the mind and I'd have felt very lonely had I not been in company with Chris. Our boats are so similar it was good to watch a PBI handle the conditions. By the time we got back I was a much better helmsman. Like Chris said - big grins.

Yes, the race went ahead, wind reached F7 at times (measured by several yachts). No dinghies. 13 Flying Fifteens. Several filled but kept going, one capsized and I had to tow him in. A great day.

Tony.

Errrr according to my Calendar 29th Sept. is a Tuesday? Do you mean the 26th?

Timing will be tight, but if I can get the Hull finished & the new trunks fitted I may appear with the Suz 25 on the transom.......
