Flying Solo!

Well I have seen it all now - a Solo completely out of the water bar its foils having hit a 32 knot gust at buoy '0', tightened up, hit a wave, taken off, and then slapped down for a capsize! And that was only a taste of the fun the Solo fleet had at the Bartley Open on Sunday.

17 took to the water, 1 returned straight away..., 8 remained by the end of the day staggering around, soaked through, but with grins from ear to ear.

Thanks to the competitiors for the entertainment, the rescue crew for a hard days work, the galley for feeding us on time, and Nick Thornton for organising the event (and special thanks to his wife for compiling the results year after year).

We asked for wind after the last 2 years drifting - and it all came at once!

Well done to Howard, Ian, and Neil - the top 3 Bartley boats.
