I 100% agree.

I hope to go for a long sail soon.

Maybe I could get somat cheap in Whitby for the £4K I was going to spend on a Flotilla holiday in Greece.

Re: oar / oars required

I have 4 oars and one dinghy. Admittedly two of the oars came with the dinghy. How long an oar are you looking for? I could go out and measure them but it's dark and I have had a few. The other problem is they are in Yorkshire and I probably won't be able to get up there before you are allowed to go...

No point me asking for a pic of Seminole as you sail past if you can't even get one of a shup so close to your optimal track :o

Re: How to get launched?

If wully is right, then it'll soon start pishin doon and all the wobbly pink flesh and corned-beef legs will be back in front of the telly. Problem solved. If I'm allowed on my boat this year I don't give a shyte what the weather is doing, even if I can't sail, or I'll get wet if I do, I'm going to...

You are talking about insignificant numbers.

Re: How to get launched?

I have written this year off. Not expecting to do any sailing before August and probably not after then.

Re: There is hope

I got the Tinker out of the garage a couple of days ago to redo a leaking patch.
It never warmed up enough to do the job.
Put it back yesterday to keep it dry.
Oh well, try again another day.

Re: Rigging?

I asked about the Bavaria incident. The forestay, or a fitting in it failed. It wasn't rough or windy, but she didn't answer my question about if they had too much sail up. The rigging was fairly new so it looks more like poor fitting or a weak part rather than aged worn out bits. Her main concerns ...

Re: Rigging?

The only person who I know who has had a dissmasting experience is a lass who came to crew for me. She was crewing on a Bavaria (42?) from Lanzarote to Africa with a charter company, as a holiday I presume, and they ended up back in Lanzarote mastless. I know nothing of the conditions when it went p...

Re: welcome anchorages

I used to look on it as a useful, annually updated, compliment to the CCC pilots which can be out of date by the time I feel like replacing them. After falling foul of two years out of date info in WA when visiting Derry last year I had to revise my opinion. A couple of anchorages are now included i...

Re: Contrary to Popular Opinion

Of course our combined weight comes in <100, almost ( :shock: ) give or take 10yrs, one of the benefits of finding younger crew.

We have condoms, may be out of date LOL.
