Gale Force, a solo Maxi :)

Craig did well in her the first year. But he was well aware he needed to move early if things needed changing i.e. he looked over his shoulder and saw the black wall of doom coming so dropped his kite......in plenty of time to sit there happily watching the others in the fleet who hadn't looked behind them.

 

The forecast looks OK for a newbie Nigel in a bigger beast..... lookin good for a Nigel in a baby beast as well.

She does feel a bit like a solo maxi.  Trust me, getting sh*t down in time is fairly important on the Voombeast when solo too....

 

I'll be running old jibs and if brave, old kites, till I've had a few goes at trying not to trash sh*t.
