Great weekend thanks Grant and Armare Ropes. First sailing singlehanded in the Gale Force, and i learnt a lot. Here are some of the lessons i learnt:
-Tie your battens in aftet you swap mains. Saves them falling out apparently.
-figure out when to start, dont start 1 min after everyone
-let runner off before you tack
-let runner off before you tack
-close hatch BEFORE the first big wave goes over boat, not after
-dont wrap kite around forestay
-if you wrap kite around forestay, once is enough, 6 times is too many....

Ill do better next time. Maybe.

A write up to follow shortly...... including the comment "I think Sunday morning is the first time ever I have seen an entire fleet wide and race management wide hangover'. Armare Ropes did out a few bucks on the bar and the fleet did deal to them all with enthusiasm.

 

But in the mean time was some of the finishing close?

There was talk of 17knots being hit by SS in the big waves out past Rakino - the 830's were hitting mid teens, what a fun sail home!
