First sail of the year at last, it's been a long wait! Ferring was a great alternative to Worthing with a nice grass rigging area, pity not to have Heather's mum's beach hut though. Sunday was perfect first sail weather with sun and a nice south westerly. Everyone was rigging 6.5s, but due to some extra winter poundage that didn't seem quite enough, so 8.5 it was. Unfortunately when I finally got to the water and raised the rig the third panel down split in half. Seemed to work ok so had a really nice sail in classic Worthing style conditions, must look out the duct tape though.
