With a tear in my eye and a stone in my heart I took the
the Sailing Barge to its final resting place.

The staff at the Civic Amenity site were not very sympathetic.

I shall keep a picture in my wallet.

Joy another sail.
Spotted an empty space in the garage, so went on a
quest to Windy World and have filled it with a 4.5m Tush Rock.

Looks lovely rigged in the garden, I can just about reach the boom
with my finger tips.

Just need to find my glam rock platform heels and I'm sorted.

It will be interesting to see how often it gets used Phil, certainly not one to buy shiny new. My 4.2 has been used twice in about 7 years, but the 4.7 gets used a few times a year. The old 4.7 I had cost me £50 and did me for about 6 years before a bad session at Weston did for it.

You do realise getting a sail that small means you will have to return and buy a new board to go with it as a 4..5 won't fit very well on the big carve. :D
