Comet Trio Nationals Exe SC 22 Aug 15

Plenty of sunshine today for Day 2 of the Trio nationals but sadly very little breeze and hardly any racing.  There's a selection of pictures on the Photo Galleries page.  Thanks to Steve for the ride in RIB "Scooby".  Just like the old days...

Sailing Again!

Went for a sail on the Exe in Nellie (Dorado 12) this morning.  Launched just after HW on quite a big tide which is (+) convenient as the water is right at the bottom of the slipway (-) slightly tricky as the breeze was blowing up the slipway (NW) so had to hoist sails when afloat standing in quite deep and, by then, fast flowing water.  But got off OK and had a pleasant sail in around 8-10 knots of breeze.
