Calshot Megabash has always been good fun, wind or no wind.
This year was just wonderful, some of us managed a late sail although light wind(both days).
But, for me the best part was messing about in the water, as the children made this week-end something special. Great to see old faces again, I guess I'm one of them, and to meet new friends. I would love more week-ends like this.

Thanks to all those that organised this event.

Sorry a little late on this comment

Christchurch Harbour Sunday 22nd May

I arrived around 12 midday to find Mr Shefford and family excited by the available steady wind.
Some new recruits where rigged and ready to go.

Sheena took to the water first, I believe I was out soon afterwards, then Dave took over later and was gybing merrily away.

The average sail size appeared to be 5.3, so I rigged a 6mtr with loads of downhaul (thank goodness I have a north extension)

This is the first time on the water since the Megabash last summer.
I can honestly say the is the best first time out I have ever had. 2.5 hrs of solid blasting.

Robert Walton Sharp was spending a lot of time rigging, then I realised he had broken a mast rigging up, and he had to adjust his 490 mast with a hacksaw. What we do to get of the water! I hope it was worth it Robert.

If there are more days like this WOW.
I think everyone had a great time.
I should have taken my short board.
