My new one, having just had 20 buckets of sea water chucked in my face off the starboard bow whilst out in the Aerotec today - whatever the blooming forecast says always err on the side of adding + 10 mph to the wind speed.

Having said that F5 + in the Bombard was great fun and as always I bottled out long before the boat.
