the hero was of course the boat.

I will echo this,the boat performed very well

Once Paul took over, and explained a bit more by word and practice what he was seeking to achieve... ahead of the really bad stuff... the crashes reduced in frequency and intensity.

I saw richard "tacking" across the waves to lengthen the wavelength but the sea was so confused,the extra speed gained didnt really increase our speed made good,I felt the ride was better but the others on board didnt agree,so I gave up and went back to plodding straight into it.

Having Paul as an expert beside me

Thanks Bruce-but I certainly wouldnt describe myself as an expert,I learnt shedloads

Powering hard up the waves, and then whipping down almost to neutral as we came off the top off resulted generally in a good landing,

This worked very well.

Andre / Phil

Just a note to thank you for all your hard work in organising this event we all had a great time.

Also would like to thank all the other Ribnet members for making us feel so welcome it was a brilliant weekend.

Glad to hear the Solent group were all safely back as it was pretty heavy going just back to Littlehampton.


Peter, Debbie, Anthony and Keith
