Me and the wife popped up to the boat club on Wednesday to do some long over due boat maintenance.

A good scrub down and fettle with the running gear was needed

Alison took all the photos while I did the hard scrubbing and sorting of ropes and wires. :roll:

Saturday I will be giving her a shake down ready for a pursuit race on Sunday.

Ain't got no sea legs...( a poor swimmer, so always used to worry what might if i went overboard... :pale: )

BUT..i did have a go on a similar Cat type when in cuba...

and i LOVED it....the wind, the speed, the spray..... :cheers:

(oooh err.. that does look a script for a drug/porn movie.. :)) )

but anyways i loved the feeling...much like the freedom of the bike, now i think of it... :-B

So travel fast, my friend.... :thumright:

Our club open day was a great success even with a low turnout.

Two chaps from the local Uni were flying their drone which was a two man operation.
The pilot had to have a licence to fly it and the other chappy was the camera man.

A little video of the day has just come up and I come at 1.18

So that's you racing by with the rainbow coloured sail? Or is it the gay pride emblem? ;))

Cracking little video that, great use of the drone. :-bd

Ollie, are you still sailing? Do you still have the cat?

Made it to 200 miles short of yachtmaster and then I stopped sailing for a bit. Life got in the way. Not forgotten you fancy crewing by the way.
