Saturday is out for us this week I'm afraid, both the smaller Nashers have Cricket Matches for School.

We may however take their SIB up Fareham Creek on Sunday.

I'm fancying a jaunt out. Since my new backrests are not yet finished, I don't have to run round like crazy to get the ply boards made and off to an upholsterers!

Andy, I think you made a good call bailing today.
My boat was already in the water when we spoke, and Gareth talked me into going out anyway. It was blowing a hooley, reasonably calm down Southampton Water on the way out, rough heading west in the solent, so I turned round and went east, into the path of the homecoming round the island yachts. What a sight!

It was no rougher than conditions I've been in before, but I took loads of air today coming into the wind! I even nearly flipped it off of one wave that came from nowhere A gust of wind coincided with the takeoff just at the wrong moment! And I was being so careful - only doing 17 kn or so. Me thinks I need a bit of bow ballast.

i wanted to go today but with the wind like that i thought its not worth it

i went back down stokes bay at 16.30 and theres a yacht up on the beach with lots
of damage.
i see out of the 1750 boats that took part in the race only 1526 past the finish line.
