Master plan worked today!

Lucas was out happily sailing for two hours - joined by Rorry and Iona half-way through. Rorry was the only one planing, but I didn't care, cause I was fast-tacking non-stop - although I wasn't planing, which makes fast-tacking sound like a bit of an oxymoron, but never mind. The point is that I was tacking!

The small sail was deliberate, so that I could keep a close eye on Lucas, so I seized the opportunity for some much-needed low speed practice.

Kids were very impressive! Long gone the days when we used to beg them to have another go in the lagoon!

Great to see everyone over the weekend.

John, hope you feel better!

First time out on the Speedster. A beast to manage but very forgiving. Great for practising going on a straight line, and those lazy gybes... I could enter in a downward dog position and still manage to turn! Looking forward to less erratic wind next time, probably not in Calshot!

Weekend gathering was fab. Great to see folks we haven't seen for a couple of years.
