Well, with the lee boards up they could come into the beach. Is it easy to ship the transom hung rudders in battening down in a storm?

Why not? There aren't many dinghy's faster than a fireball downhill in a breeze.

At the GBR joint 'ball and 505 nationals, it was interesting to see the comparison with the top fireballs going past the top 505's even though they had like half the sail area.

3mm ply is no match for 110kg size 11 boots! Anyone know how to fix my foredeck?
