Hi Brian, I thought we were serious about this already! We are trying our hardest and now have several scores in the high 17s.
We had some good breeze in the UK over this weekend, no big scores to report from Lymington but it sounds like Chunky had bigger breeze up at Northampton and has just landed a big one! More on that soon...
Ryan Nelson nearly made it out during the demo sails at San Francisco in 25kn wind on Friday and was suggesting 'going 9'. Unfortunately it passed and they were left with a light breeze.
Of course, maybe we are helped in the UK by our dense cool air rather than your hot dry wind in Geelong. It is not called 'heavy airs' in the UK for nothing, most often laden down with various varieties of moisture from damp, dash, deluge, dish, downpour, drenching, driving rain, drizzle, flurry, fog, hammering, mist, mizzle, peas souper, pelting down, pitter-patter, pouring, rain, cats and dogs, sheets, shower, sleat, smizzle, spindrift, spitting, spotting, sprinkling, stair rods, thrashing down, throwing it down to torrential!
Lets get some Aussie Speeds up here. They don't have to be records, just personal bests. Give speed in knots, a pic and brief report.
