i97, BPR325 and maiden voyage of 6.2m Severne Mach 1. First impressions are good - rock solid rocket. Only negative was cams need alot of convincing to rotate- suspect I can fix that with tuning. But dayum does it pull. Always more in it if you just sheet harder. Looking forward to spending time on it.
Good representation on the water today, plenty of punters and a better than expected breeze. Nice opener 2018!

Been awhile since on the water and it showed today. Tried the 92 and 6.3 first but could not get going. Put the 115 on the 6.3 and went over to the weed beds. As soon as I got their the wind filled in and could not keep board on the water ( over fined) and got smashed. Should have stayed on the 92 and waited for the wind to come back in.
Need more time on the water to get sailing fitness back.
