Phew! That must be something. A few Cowes Weeks ago I was driving along Cowes seafront and the Melges were running back towards the Royal Yacht Squadron. It must have been Force 6 and this one Melges was right close in, really close in. All the guys were cramed in the stern and they caught a sustained gust. My car speedo was reading 30mph and I was just keeping up.

Sometning I will always remember. Amazing. They must have caught up loads of places and I kept thinking 'they are going to hit a rock!'. But they didn't, and when the gust subsided, they were all whooping and giving each other high-5s.

Cool as ****!

Nothing so big as a 2556, only an 18ft bowrider so she lives on my drive not in the marina.
Gave a few Melges a tow in during the summer so we might have already said hello ?
Guess if it was you though you would have wanted to return to the lift not the harbour pontoon
