The wind so was good! two-up hiking, nice gentle breeze, sun, what more do you want!

you try sheeting in while the mainsheet eats away at the side of a block! and helps if we had a 4k kite and not a wayfarer one!

I got a phone call while I was wating my breakfast, "Can you hear that traffic ... We are on the M25 ... Ummm .. Car's broken ... "

I, being the kind soul I am, laughed, and said I would wave as I drove past them.

(un)Fortunately, another car was pressed into service, and we caught up with them just before the sailing club. Que phone call from dave.blakesley ... "Can you guys lead ... We don't know the way..."

I'm still not sure what they broke .. Driveshaft was mentioned, as was gearbox ... and then later something about it being one cable?

Get off m25 at M4, head out towards Reading, get off at Datchet turn off, turn left (dont follow datchet signs, turn right into sailing club!! (Ok thats not it but you get the gist, A BP garage come into it somehow!)
