Wednesday evening sail

Wednesday saw a bit of Fat Bottomed Girl testing, as my foiler is in the workshop for some mods. The light breeze made the conditions perfect to scope out the girl’s PY. After I completely fluffed the start and went behind everyone, she pulled through the fleet fine and wasn’t anywhere near as sticky as expected. I think in thoses conditions she will be around RS300 speed, which for a fat boat is pretty darn good!

I’m hoping for a bit more wind next week to give her a bit more of a shakedown…

Tom Whicher was also around after the sailing for a bit of a chat as he is working up in Bristol at the moment at Wet ‘N’ Windy. Hopefully he will be bringing his boat along for a few weeks taking the mothy club up to 7 boats!
