hi guys and gals. i'm down in London and just wondering how your trip off Fleetwood is going or gone? Hope it isn't too 'bracing' for you all. Are any of you going to be in the 'smoke' for the boat race on the 8th of March?

Hi folks

Well for a change it was windy , but not a windy as last time.

Meet up about 11.30 ish and we all went for a play in the channel.
Waves was a bit confusing as we didnt go out into deeper water.
Manged a good 2.5 hours playing this time before making a fast run back for the lock gates.
Anyway we had a good day, thanks to everyone.

Hopefully we will all be their on the 8th, lets just hope for some weather that we can get some cruising done.

Managed to get quite a few pics, once I know if their are any that was not the sky or floor I will post. May stand a chance with the iones Nicole took, dont hold much hope for mine

Regards Gary

NWR tradition

You lads (and lass) are certainly maintaining the NWR tradition of being mad bast*rds!
We nearly lost the caravan last night in the "breeze", you done good!

Shame it was only 'nearly'. That caravan and me are not best friends. As for the NWR tradition of being 'mad bastards' can you please explain to the forum why you declined the offer of a zappacat ride on Sunday. It was only F6. I think you've been mixing with them Southerners too much.

Southern wuss

I was fed up of the wind and the cold, I wasn't going to get piss wet through as well. Jono is renowned for rolling vehicles with four inflatable supports, he would have no problem on one with only two! Plus, after looking at houses all weekend I really couldn't be arsed with the hassle.
Only those being paid, or paying, would want to go out in those temperatures anyway. The icicles on your A frame also dampened the enthusiasm a touch!
I trust this answers your question and I can only reiterate what I said to you on the phone (not for public consumption).
