Sadly all the FFs at grafham are quite quick and the front
guys usually catch me up if I am sailing kiteless even
though they are the start behind me! SO i can't be too
harsh.

Except to Chris and his special "coat".

Blimey thats a bit of a shocker - all that cast iron apendage and goes the
same speed
as our lovely new shiny hi-tech rS100's. Obviously knew a thing or two that
Uffa Fox !

Thinking about it (not done so before) the RS100 is going to be the slowest
boat I have ever sailed - but the one that looks nicest and by far the one I
am most looking forward to ! Strange thing that really.

Simon's the one with his transoms in the air and rudders out of the water
doing an impression of an Extreme 40 losing it on the bear-away !!!!!!

20 minutes sailing, 30 seconds of hilarious full-on nose diving, 30 minutes
of righting it from capsizes with the kite up !

Come on Simon you know you need an RS100 as well as the Vortex !
