The first sail of 2019 ....?

Those of us who sailed at the end of December had a good session, but gusty and challenging. Well 2019 seems to have started in much the same way. Two of us had a good sail on 5.5m and 4.75m sails on Saturday 12th January, though it was just 7C. The pictures below are from Sunday 13th January when another 2 hardy souls sailed. Although a touch milder, xcweather had forecast a Force 6 Westerly wind gusting to about 45mph. I think that was bang on! It's not for nothing you'll see plenty of white caps and some airborne spray. It's impressive that Dane managed to hold onto a 5.4m sail!

Maybe the sailing will get easier soon ....?!

Not put off, I'm coming up again this aft, seeing there's a space. Sundays not so pressured now.

Dave, the scratches were not there before I left home. Not deep scratches, though, I have got some anti-scratch stuff; youtube makes it look easy to fix, will try my lmited skills

Pleased to report no scratches on cars yesterday afternoon. It was super gusty! Hoping for a more controlled session this morning, heading up shortly.

Stephen were the scratches definitely not there before you came

Pete George - 23/05/2020 - 14:38

My first suspicions were right. Just washed the car, scratches have gone.
