Tom Offer and myself packed up the boats early this morning for a quick trip down to Foiltown (Not sure why we still call it that – Nostalgia maybe?) to get some weed free sailing in.
Turned out to be a cracking day for it and joining Me and Tom were Doug Pybus, Alex Adams and Helen Rollinson and later on in the day Adam May and Katherine Knight were spotted out as well although they launched from the Academy while we were all hiding on the beach at Castle Cove. The wind gods treated us well with a 15+ knot Westerly giving us all a chance to stretch out sea legs and blow the cobwebs away.
Alex also obliged with a bit of a measuring session as I’ve got my new Hyde, plus the Ellway sail to get sorted so I’m not panicking and running around Silvaplana. Speaking of which – 8 days till loadup!
Really looking forward to it. 80 boats… I think this is probably this years real world championships – a sign if any that 2 worlds within 8 months of each other were too many and hopefully a mistake the class wont make again.
