Hooray!

Mrs Wully has binned Origin broadband as the ISP here and swapped to yodel fone so now I can access Bluemoment without resorting to the annoying anonymising browser or even 4G. For some strange reason Origin thought Nickski was running some dodgy Russian scam/porn website and blocked it.. :lol: :lol:

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

Re: New Argyll Navigation Warning.

Terrifying, not only from the speed POV, but also now a falling from height risk. I bet it is great fun. Is it more stable than a conventional windsurfer once on the foil, or is it very tippy? It isn’t as fast as a conventional slalom board but is a lot less physical. Stability... Once foiling IF y...

Re: New Argyll Navigation Warning.

How does that work then? Does it fit into the skeg slot or centre board slot? This foil fits into the ‘deep Tuttle’ skeg box but this board can take both types of foil mount. I think there are only two boards on the market now that have a centre board... The board it’s self is interesting as it’s a...

Mariners are advised it’s pointless trying to take evasive action as this vessel will be steering an erratic course if at speed and will be at times partially or tot...

Re: Restart Scottish Sailing Consultation

You will no doubt be pleased to learn that we had a most excellent sail in warm SE breezes - wearing shorts, tee shirts and big stupid smiles. Slightly sunburned though. Not another sailie boatie in sight, just one wee creel boat and some fish farm stuff. Another boat did leave Craobh about an hour ...
