What can I say.......
Myles may feel vindicated In his choice to not travel.
But it is definitely going to be one of those 'I was there' moments.

Now I like lots of wind, but having to do 3 tacks and deepish reaches in order to get downwind is interesting.
You can read that as way past windy.
This was F windy.

On that note.
Big up to the Blaze fleet's new 'stunt sailor'
Martin Saveker last seen trying too hard to catch up and aiming directly downwind.........
Did you know that a Blaze can pitchpole. Neither did I until today.
Martin's ok (the boat missed him when it landed)

Tomorrow is forecast to be a little lighter for the pursuit. So hopefully ideal Blaze conditions.
I've replaced the blown up kicker block (with Harken this time)
Martin is attempting to source a replacement mast and return tomorrow. Now that's dedication!

Another shout out - Chris Saunders (Blaze 679) seen at the front end and standing on the centreboard of an osprey ;-)

Good effort Rob - and Martin sounds as though it was really extreme. Myles

if anyone shouold doubt it was windy, this picture was taken just after I finally got back up after my pitch pole and a fraction before I noticed the bottom of the mast!!!!
as you can see from the sail I was "cruising" on a reach wimping out at the back, and a couple of minutes just be for a final colapse of the mast/
