New jib trial..

Lovely trip out on the boat last night, and a chance to finally try out the new jib... just a short trip as I had to go after work, but oh my, what an evening... it's been scorching hot this week in the UK (unusual to say the least) but an hour or two on the water was enough to restore the equilibrium ... a pleasant hour and a half's sailing in light winds ensued, followed by a half hour drift back to the mooring in an absolutely flat calm, warm and balmy evening - a can of Bass in one hand (which had hung over the side for the previous hour to cool ), and a cigar in the other... absolutely magic - one of those evenings where you can hear people talking, miles away...

Distance: 4 miles (55 miles year to date)
Wind: Light (Force 1 gusting nothing!)


  1. Wow that is an amazing effect!

    I have friends in Bath so often drive down that road from the M4 when I go to see them.

  2. I just tried it and it's brilliant! Even I could work it out. It's like flying!

  3. Now you just need to pick your favourite battle site and you really start learning new things about the battle... what did we do before the interweb??? :o))

  4. That is very nice - thank you!
