Excellent event, it was great fun. Well, 4 races back to back on Saturday in the rain seemed fun at the time. Overall we were 36th out of around 90 which was a reasonable result, the trapezoid course on Saturday had three spinnaker legs and one beat starting in a light breeze in race 1 to a 4/5 by race 4. Today was a double points pursuit (40th 80 points!!) in a very strong wind - hard work and excellent fun.
 
Planning to enter the Tiger trophy at Rutland at the beginning of Feb.

Well done Howard, its a lame excuse I know, but a long way given the current winds etc,
we will try harder to make the Tiger trophy, if its at the end of feb it should give John enough notice :)

We enjoyed the 'gusts from hell' at the Grafham Grand Prix last week, very exciting. Obviously I have been consuming too much Christmas Pud and Brandy sauce as we capsized in the second race when doing quite well - at least the dry suit was working! Hmmm, can I blame an appalling first beat in race 1 on Christmas excess?
 
Cannot make the Starcross Steamer but have just entered the Stevie Nic at Northampton (three Tasars entered Smile) and will be entering the John Merricks at Rutland.
