Re: Mart,Ads and Whatisname DO Brechfa

BTW, DO remind me to be extra careful NOT to eat any safety pins.

I feel I will always need that kind of guidance.

RIP Rat Rigs

First Windy World, now Rat RIgs.

A really sad indication of the state of windsurfing in the UK.

Good Luck with the online venture, Scott & Sian.

Re: Mart,Ads and Whatisname DO Brechfa

Good sail at WSM on Sat, followed by two wonderful rides: Sunday - Gorlech red trail with Adrian. Monday - Raven black trail with Huw & Adrian. Joy did the green trail - and enjoyed it! Great B&B in Brechfa (Glynfras), decent pub in Abergorlech (Black Lion). The Shed at the trail head does an excell...

Re: Star Wars day

Another variant of Star Wars day is May 25th (co-incidentally also my birthday), as being the date in 1977 the original film was released! Unfortunately, my birthday preceded the film by more than 2 decades. As Matt said, I was at WSM on Saturday: 5.5m on 82l Quad was spot on for a while. After HW, ...

RIP Windsurfers World

Bristol WIndsurfers World is no more. Rich has decided to call it a day & the shop is now closed.

Sadly, Bristol now has a grand total of zero windsurfing shops.

Good luck to you Rich; whatever you do next.

Re: Friday/Saturday?

I'll be at WSM tomorrow (Sat) as long as the forecast stays looking good. HW @ 15:00 (9m), I believe.

Nigel may also be there.

Weston - Thur 18/4/2013

We must have nicked LT's sunshine - especially after about 13:00. Arrived at HW to a long squall. I'd just started to rig 5.5m sail to go on the new Starboard Quad 82l. Sat out the squall only to find - as is normal after a squall - the wind had dropped a bit. Anyhow, I persisted with my choice and ...

Re: 17th or 18th April

It's looking good. Too much work, but one has to get one's priorities right. Hope to see you there. LT's clearly decided to take a day off from his light duties come what may.

Re: 17th or 18th April

Sorry - please don't rely on me being there and I take no responsibility for disappointments or consequential loss - physical or emotional. I'm trying to keep the day clear but it just may not happen :(

Topic Icons

I spent some time wondering what the meanings were of all the icons at the left of a topic title on the new (version 3.0) software. Bizarrely, the makers of phpBB3 don't include the meanings, but I managed to find this link that tells the whole story (you'll have to scroll down past the first 8 or s...

Re: Where do you leave your Sails

I had a the luff tube eaten out of a sail once. It had lain dormant in my trailer in the garage for two years, whilst up for sale. When someone did eventually call round to look at it, I unrolled it on the lawn in front of prospective buyer to reveal all its eaten splendour. Embarrased, I gave him t...
