A Decent Day

Last Sunday (16th) saw three of us taking advantage of the first decent day for a while. Unfortunately we only had one Dragon Force and one electric motorboat between us! Despite this we had a good couple of hours on the water. John's Dragon Force was going well after a few rigging tweaks and after a quick trip back to Bill's workshop, he also got the little electric running, although he couldn't get it to maintain full throttle. We suspect the speed controller is too small to handle the current at full throttle and he is getting a better one to replace it.

Only downside of the day, was that after the heavy rains there was a lot of suspended silts in the water and both boats neeeded a good washdown at the end of the day!

This coming Saturday (22/2/14) is a round of the North/South Winter Series for International One Metre (IOM) type yachts. Here's  hoping we get a good turnout.
