You can camp onsite.  Being on the doorstep of Heathrrow, as so to speak, there's a a ton of hotels and B&Bs, but have no idea of prices.

Unfortunately I wont be going now. My big toe on my left foot has managed to get itself infected (god knows how, there's no cuts or anything) and last night swelled up to epic proportions and and caused large amounts of pain. So now I'm on mahoosive antibiotics, and have to keep my foot elevated. So no sailing for me
600 732, will call it Sticks and Stones when i get round to it.
Also International 14, 1318

The Optimist travelling circus has already started to arrive at Grafham for the Inlands, so after a good sail there today (Hi Jimbob!) the Contender and I are off to Hunts where I will demonstrate my inability to trapeze in the nasty shifty wind they get there. 
the same, but different...

Alas I shan't be out, haven't sailed for aaaages either. Managed to get a finger slammed in some doors so I can't move far from an ice-pack at the mo...

Dare I say "Any excuse" ....  (Please don't hit me .. )

Gonna admit to not sailing myself though .. Finishing off the re-roping I started a few weeks back, and considering a few pimps + bimbles, and getting marks from carbon tiller extension off my side decks!!

Its the Rickmansworth Canal Festival as well this weekend, pop down to the Aquadrome, Rickmansworth, have a wander around! BLYM have a stand, I'm not sure if I have a slot on it or not but the club is just a short walk down the main path .. Come down say Hi!!

Might be at GW on sunday of the forecast looks sensible.  I think I'll get there early.  Move all the boats that have been dumped in front of mine.  Get rigged, pack my lunch in the tramp bag, take the waterproof camera and go out for the say.  Might borrow the Oppie course for a bit of early training and maybe go see them for a bit.

 

Funny thing there are "Oppie parents" in every sport.  Was at a Ski race a few weeks ago, and there are "oppie parents" there too!!!

Wanna learn to Ski - PM me..

I saw six parents rigging one boat yesterday.  The kids were playing on the grass....

It always makes me wonder- how pushy/overbearing were the parents of Ben Ainslie etc?

I thought the Oppie circus were off somewhere, saw two ribs yesterday on the M25, one towed my an RYA Volvo, the other from Burghfied with an Oppi on top.

As for me, I am considering taking the 700 out tomorrow, forcast is for wind!

EDIT - Changed my mind, will either be a Pico or Laser, depends whats available when I get there!

Visiting rellies this weekend in Essex but escaped to Brightlingsea for the 1st time in years this afternoon with the dog for a stroll along the prom. Full on onshore F6 and no dinghies out.

Still one of my favourite places on earth and the new marina development doesn't look to have gentrified the place too much - thank goodness. Dinghy park looked healthy. Might sneak out again tomorrow to watch the boats go out.....

 
Like some other things - sailing is more enjoyable when you do it with someone else
