Slow start to the week with no sailing at all
till Tuesday, but a variety of weather conditions followed, including
a windy day with a reported gust of force 7.
We had mainsheet damage 30 seconds into the race, but lashed up a 2:1
system and managed to complete the race,
which at times felt like abseiling down blocks of flats without the
rope! The word on the beach was "Awesome".
POW itself was delayed to the Friday due to weak winds, on the Friday
we had a healthy breeze, perfect for us. No bad errors till the end
when we went for the wrong finish line and let in 2 boats, including
Julian Pearson, to end up 18th which is nevertheless my best POW
