I've been putting it off for ages but finally Boat 3 and I went for our first sail today. Oh good Lord was it cold launching but my new boat felt great with no ventilation on the rudder and every bit as nice as the Geelong boat. After half an hour the wind was on the way out and I drifted silently back in my empty Chichester harbour. Good to be home really. It's Parkstone open this weekend but I'm unsure if I'll be there. I may just sail here, for a few weeks more yet...It's nice not to race sometimes.
