Re: oxford training?

Unfortunately I won't be there on Saturday, as I have to be in Cornwall with No.2 daughter.

Have a great day, and hopefully see you all at some point next year.

Re: AC271 For Sale

If anyone has a Nethercott IC (or Slurp) and is thinking of getting an AC, I would be interested in a PX.

AC271 For Sale - now sold

A sad day for me, but finally realised that I'm never going to sail it again because of the Arthritis in my hands. Razorback carbon hull (Robin Wood won the Worlds in this boat) sprayed purple by Rob. Superspars carbon mast, carbon boom. Dynamic square-top SL4 main and jib (almost new condition) wit...

Re: OXFORD

Hi chaps Apologies for my "radio silence" recently, been up to my neck in it generally. I'll be helping Simon with race management on Saturday, but won't be able to join you for dinner. The problem with my hands has pretty-much meant that I haven't been able to sail the canoe this year, and it's beg...

Re: Oxford Open Meeting

Thanks to all for coming along, the weather was kind to us in the end (even though the wind could have been a bit kinder).

My legs ache.

Latest forecast is for 14kts with gusts to 22kts.

Who said we were going to have a light-wind event then?

Re: Oxford Open Meeting

If you read this in time Jim...

You can drop the boat off at Oxford for the week. Just put it somewhere down the bottom of the boat park.

Cheers

Re: Oxford Open Meeting

Yes, dinner has been booked and confirmed for 20 at the Talbot Inn. Also, you might be interested to know that there is a Jazz evening there on the Friday night. We won't have any catering at the club for breakfast, as there were only a couple of people interested in this (sorry guys). Bar will be o...

Had a go in the Maas Missile on Friday

Blowing about 15kts (+ with gusts) at Farmoor. Wow! So light and reactive. Quite good dynamic stability, once you get some boatspeed on. Tacking's interesting (you have to be REALLY quick getting across the boat). Not nose-divey at all (much better than the Nethercott). You can drive the nose in qui...

Re: NEW RULES FOR ACs

This jjust posted under the thread of "Correctors". Thought I'd pop it here too... My 4-pence worth... Comment 1./ If you bugger about with the weight of the AC, you will effectively make 95% of the hulls obsolete and worthless, and kill the class. There seems no sense in this to me. Leave the hull ...

Re: correctors

My 4-pence worth... Comment 1./ If you bugger about with the weight of the AC, you will effectively make 95% of the hulls obsolete and worthless, and kill the class. There seems no sense in this to me. Leave the hull alone. Comment 2./ If you go the "box rule" route with the AC too, you will still e...
