Bit of a fizzer, got too love winter!!

Wind came up eventually, not much though.

Worked my way upwind with Simon, then he broke his boom a few hundred metres past the beacons.

Bit of hard work towing him in.

After that was buggered, Rob wasn't keen to head back out. Called it a day.

Thanks Jason,  sorry to put a dampner on your afternoon.  And thanks Rob for helping with the gear at the other end.  Geeeeezus I was cold by the end. I've never broken a boom on both sides -- usually its just one side and I get back!  If anyone wants to relive all the exitement of my swim + tow, its on KA72, but Im not bothering to post a result here.  Thanks again every one who gave a hand, it IS MUCH APPRECIATE

All good Simon. Sure there will be another cold rainy afternoon just around the corner without consistent wind and broken gear.

Good your ok Simon and well done Jay I know what its like I towed Pierre in 3 times during a bad bach of masts he was using at the time.

Alloy booms only last so long they corrode inside plus they bend, I will only use carbon booms now this is how I got my nick name from when I use to own alloy booms.

Bucket list -- carbon boom -- tick (as of today, not keen to repeat drowned rat experience)
