- Briefly, I became a little unwell, then capsized the boat, righted it easily but it had flooded over the CB case and I couldnt bail fast enough or tilt it out. It has always been OK in practice capsizes and could sail flooded. Chap in yacht bailed it faster than it flooded in. Magnificent. Reefed and sailed back OK , Challenge completed. Was cold and wet for about 3 hours. Thought forward tank had flooded but seems OK despite ancient and outmoded covers. Worrying!Cheers Len
I knew you had set out on the Hayling Challenge, Len
Have I missed something uploaded?
What went wrong?
- I hope you are OK, Len. Was it the Gull? Well done to complete the challenge.
I had rubber seals made from an inner tube at the top of my centrecase until recently and I think I might put them back. David
Sounds like an entire adventure to me, Len
I reckon you've cornered my vote for the Hayling Challenge Cup
Glad to hear you made it round and back and home
Hope you're better today
