    I have a blue genoa and a white main. The blue was originally the Catalac colour- they had the sails died a specific colour, but there isnt any of that available anymore, so the new main had to be white!

    We were south of you most of the way past Cowes and saw you peel off around Gillkicker whilst we continued East

    I'll second that, great time and great company. Even Nigel didnt mind the teasing!! We love you really!! Had agreat sail back (yes in a Centaur) but arrived to early at Ryde so we did loads of cirlcles and practised our hove-to which is now stored for future use on Blue Moonlight. I think most of the wind today was caused by the crew and skipper of Blue Moonlight inside teh cabin after the wine and beer!! Cheers all and many, many thanks especially Nigel (Well done)

    Hi Tome there was another Catalac with the blue sails that creamed past us even with all our sail-tweaking on Blue Moonlight - must put the engine on next time! What a cracking sail back we had to Ryde.

    And THANKS from me, brilliant time, well done and well done to everyone for turning up, I couldn't believe that raggies could make it through that storm from Hell to get there [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    I have left the boat there so will be performing tricks next weekend if anyone is around [img]/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    I was in the chandlery at Mercury marin and the guy working in there mentioned that some very experienced customers said that Saturday's weather was the worse and most unusual they had seen in the Solent, must have been the winds [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    True grit was shown skipper. When all us crew were quivering wrecks you held fast and got us there.
