We've not been actively doing the circuit, we only got the boat in November. But we do plan to make some events this year, depending on work commitments. Hopefully we'll make it to Euro's or the Nationals. 

When is the piers race?

thanks for the follow!

i try for hull inspection to be on dry land, never turns out that way!

are you actively on the 800 circuit? A couple of boats at our clubs way will be doing the RS games i believe, we're focusing more on local events this year to help build the skiff fleets up on the river.  The take up the last couple of years has been phenomenal and we want to keep that momentum up.  You'd be most welcome to come along for the East Coast Piers Race in the 800, we had 4 last year, we had a really close race out with all 4 boats reaching the leeward mark after 14 miles within 30 seconds of each other, and hope to get half a dozen at least this year along with the 49ers / Musto Skiffs and RS600s.

Thanks!

Took a look at some of your videos, I think I had seen a few before when browsing the inter-webs! Following you on YouTube now, so will look forward to some videos once you get out in Essex. 

We were out again at the weekend. A friend had a drone out too, so hopefully got some good footage... unfortunately we also did some inspection on the underside of hull which was caught tin full 4k HD from the drone  Embarrassed

That'll probably be our last sail until our first event next month. Looking forward to doing some  racing and seeing how fair against others when under pressure. It feels like we're still some way to being really competitive so I expect a bit of reality check!

Very nice indeed. Hope you get more evening sails.

Must get my 800 out soon. Or will it be the 29er?

I'm not sure about you, but for me the first evening sail of the year is a most significant mark of spring; more than the changing of the clocks, the equinox, or whatever the meteorological definition is anyway!

Here's a little video to mark the first evening sail of 2018. Unfortunately, Bosley the dog doesn't have a buoyancy aid yet, so he'll have to wait.

Evening racing doesn't start for well over another month though, and I doubt work will allow me an early get away again, so maybe this was a premature blooming! 

When does evening sailing start for the rest of you?

Thats some comfort to me - pretty much how I deal with it, its minging holding sheet behind wire and I don't like not being immediately ready, but it makes for a cleaner gybe,

In the 29er the helm doesn't have the issue, so the technique was to send the single extension through the gybe underneath the main sheet. 

In the 49er I was never really coached, so my technique was 'home taught'! I would often hold the main sheet behind the wire and sheet that way downwind so it was always the right side of the wire but  sometimes (mostly light) I would passed the sheet around the wire on the entry to the gybe. Not sure which is better "textbook" technique, maybe the latter?  

In the 800 I'm trying to just do it by passing the sheet around the wire, as it's more comfortable sheeting that way and means you're always ready to gybe. I still drop the sheet every now and then, or leave it wrapped round the old wire!

I've seen some people drop the sheet as they step in, then pick it up again from the block as they pull the boom over. I'd rather always have the sheet in my hand though.
