Its Getting Colder!

By Olly Love 2nd October 2020
Hamble Winter Series Race 5 Frank continues to race all winter, even when we have to clear the frost and ice from the deck! This week was the first of the cold weather with all the thermal base layers out along with our Rooster Crew Jackets. We had a bad start (called by me for some reason) but then went on to make a good recovery on the beat.

Lessons learnt here are to check and coil the halyard, we normally tail all our ropes out the back of the boat before a race to get all the twists out but didn’t this week.15000062_10154713808714806_3240327352000777859_o14976926_10154713826464806_7339835197691862131_o

Another lesson learnt was to put fuel in the tank to save a sail onto the fuel berth infront of the whole river! 15003411_10154713789904806_1284861040974892438_o 15025358_10154713806744806_6432336569230672095_o

Finishing 2nd impala we move up into 2nd overall now and 6th in the winter series.

All to play for over the following weeks in the winter series then onto the Frostbite and Spring
