Looking forward to FOSSC Open. Will it be possible to get into the club to drop off a boat on Friday just after lunch (depending on Good Friday traffic)? Sam and I are planning to go direct to the lake, if it is possible, to set up the boat for Sat. and then off to Newboys for a curry! Cheers,
Sorry to say we will not be there. Combination of weather over the last week and various trips to and from Sark making it all too much stress. The weather and wind look like they will be kind, so enjoy the tropics :>)

New Frampton 2013 motto "No Luff Too Tuff " In case you have not noticed its the Easter Weekend so the roads will be clear as the entire planet will either be in Tesco,s or Ikea or watching a re-run of The Great Escape,so why not pop in . Better still drag the Boat over. Chillllli for Lunch I gather and a veggie option Frampton style,[Crisps and a Mars Bar] See you at the Races
Really looking forward to Saturday. Been a while since I've sailed a single-hander and not sure I can remember how one manages all those bits of string without a crew to yell at and blame when it all goes wrong, but guess as long as I do my best to keep the pointy bit pointing at the sky, and try not to sail the wrong way around the windward mark. Again
I was supposed to be on safety boat duty, but as I have a boy now old enough to delegate to, and have managed to beg a spare Moth off Team Latham, I get to sail with you all again!
Bill dont worry you can follow me round for the 1st lap and I will shout back tips on which bits of string to pull. Not sure you should trust me though. Be good to see you again even if it will be from a distance as I sail away from you.
So who else is going to come out to play. Its really not that cold now. Winds look great for an easy start to the year.
