    Just playing with the joys of You tube and reliving the best bits of my summer so far (waiting for swine flu to take hold!!). Coping with withdrawl symptoms! Couldn’t edit it all into one I’m afraid. Its all Chichester harbour on a perfect day sail……. (middle link is the best for speed freaks)

    PS The outboard swivel friction nut is caput for the eagle eyed and the reefing varies, pause to inspect……, and its my Enterprise jib salvaged from the tip with my detuned gunwhale mounted jib fairleads /cleats. Nice to have the boat without the rest of the family weighing us down.

    Hi Dave,

    Nice to see you enjoying yourselves out there in your boat – that’s what it’s all about!

    Glad you enjoyed it Dave. It nearly all went wrong early on when the tiller extension disconnected from the tiller. I hadn’t got any tools or bits and bobs or even a penknife. Fortunately an 8 inch length of 2 mm rope off my boat tent was sitting on the floor and made a good enough lash up but a salutory lesson about the importance of a “bosuns bag”.

    Of course the video was shot on my Pentax Optio which I’m really pleased with. So is my daughter who has the photography bug…..

    PS Keep up those great logs! I hope my time for further afield will come!
