Cool runnings today! Felt cruisy but always having to keep an eye not to get too far off shore...... I was definitely missing a wood board today, the carbon board in the chop was a mission. The old bones were creaking to say the least

 

Foot strap adjustment yesterday was good except for one which left me struggling to get my hobbit feet into it.

 

And distressed Dave attracted the attention of a passing trimaran to rescue him after crashing out from a broken DH. Didnt need rescuing but it was good to see them offering help!

Another session but this time the tech worked. Last session on the JP the foot strap came off, this time the DH let go and bagged out the sail for the down wind runs. Luckily a passing yacht offered some help but what would they know about DH!!

Out with Steve and having a ball. As i type Ive still not looked at the numbers so its getting exciting!! i might delete that if its boreing!

Just looked and im pretty happy. Lets see how steves numbers cam up. Really enjoyed this session.

Looks like you made the right call Dave. Risky business with an offshore wind though, you're a braver man than me! Surprised

Plenty of action out there today... bikini clad lasses signaling for help, boats getting towed in, DHs coming loose and Steve falling off a few times.

Action central

 

Note, I always fall of a few times, sometimes to adjustCool things...
