Hi All
Just a quick post to thank the Manly crew for their welcome on Sunday. I drove from Ballina area to Brisbane and turned up to the RQYS to attend a gybe clinic, which I later found out had been cancelled. This didn't deter the Manly crew, who introduced themselves, gave me the ins and outs of the beach set up, gave me some tips with the rigging, lent me some spares for my kit, then invited me to an ad hoc gybe coaching session held by one of their crew. Very friendly and really worthwhile. Thanks Geoffrey and Duncan and others who names my memory doesn't stretch to. Hope to return the hospitality one day. Very much appreciated.

See you at Thompsons on the next S.Easter!
Dave

Good to meet you Dave, happy you had a good day
Always great to see Jeff, Jane and Max
Huge thanks to Simon, I look forward to the homework to break 30+ years of bad Gybe habits

Thanks Duncan
I've already set up the half mast and boom in the driveway and am throwing it round like a mad man. Looking forward to Jeff's video upload which I'll watch again and again, then set up a sail on the lawn, do the same, then give it a go in the water, preferably somewhere shallow!
Cheers
Dave
