Easter at Littlehampton

Finally made it out today.

Many thanks to Adrian for all his hard work in getting my boat ready for today

Saw Nick and crew out as well.
was intresting to see the ride differences between the Fletcher and the Larson.
Both boats powered by the same 3litre Mercury engine and both hulls approx the same length.
But Nick did have the bigger crew today.
Role on next weekend when nick has said we will be on equal terms. Will be intresting to compare the 2 boats in like for like circumstances

Re: Easter at Littlehampton

Ian,

Thanks for the photo's .......... it's the first time i have seen a close up of the boat. Must admit it does look good and who is that handsome driver !!!!!!!

We went back out after drooping most of the gys off and she went a lot better even though the sea got a lot more choppy later in the day.

It also sounds like the gauntlet has been thrown down for a little race next Saturday so i suppose i had beeter get in some training

Cheers and see you next weekend

Nick

Re: Easter but not at Littlehampton

Nice to see that you guys have been having fun without us. I trust we have been missed or am I mistaken

Re: Easter in the Solent

Nice photos Andre.

My congrats to your good lady for some fine photography!!

T'was a fine day out and it looks like th erest of your weekend continued the same.

Ian
The move to Chichester is working out really well.
Launching is easy and the trip through the harbour is no chore at all.

Damn boat is still sick, and any disposable income has definately been disposed of.

But there again my cup could still be half full and the eternal optimist in me says..........erm erm erm???
