Nice session on the weekend, fortunately the caretaker left the gate open when he left. We all snuck in while he was having a sunday roast with gravy and veg. Probably pie afterwards with custard. As a salute to him we had a stiff drink before we left (and before we finished sailing too) I came in after a short spell on the water to get my camera.

Hi Ken. No it's a WeedSpeed 25 this was a slow speed dismount on a berg . After I did one earlier I went in to get the camera to take this pix when it happened again. The WS was fine at seed and only struggled at slow speed and only occasionally. More "snot" there.

So the answer to not getting thrown over the front by weedbergs is to go flat out at all times ??. That's me in the second photo thanks Dave.

Thanks Dave, Swindy's 5.0 looks rather nice, thanks Roger!
And a big plus, the GPS carrier on my helmet is very close to horizontal and pointing at the sky. It's very hard looking in a mirror, trying to reproduce your sailing stance and mark the helmet with a felt pen. But this seems to have worked, thanks again mate.

Hi Dave. Good to meet you yesterday on the water.
Can you please let me know the website/link where I can find the GPS tracker you showed me ?
Cheers, Laurent.
