Well done to the 3 multis that finished the race,

Hyper for 1st place handicap, and Tigre and Triple 8 for completing the course.


I didn't do it, because I thought (silly me) the seas (predicted up to 4 metres) would have been too big with 30 to 40 knots that I may not be able to keep the bows from digging into the waves in front.

People have said I should fly the kite to lift the bows, but I don't think I would have the nerve to do that. Would the screecher do the same thing?

What say others? :problem: :problem:

Cheers John,


Was wondering where you were ....


A screecher will push the bows down and a kite will lift them.

Mind you no kite will lift you out of the back of a wave that you just stuffed the nose into! I was a bit concerned Friday night about rounding Flat Rock and surfing down the predicted 4mtr swell. As it happens I didn’t need to worry! :lol:
