Hi all, am currently looking for some cheap anchor warp for some buoys and I only know of Nylon rope that won't float (ie any extra line gathering at the surface) and don't know of any cheaper alternatives. Anyone have any suggestions?
Ok I need a few suggestions on ideas for a training session Im running.
3 or 4 youth radials at club level (trying to get them to try in other events this year)
The idea of the session is to teach them to teach themselves
So the aim of this is that they can go away from the 2 sessions and...
For boat handling I find long upwind legs of tacking every 20 secs is good exercise and practice, hard to practice boat handling without others around

Best way to is experiment on the water and see which style is best suited to your weigth and height. Remember if your not capsizing while practicising roll tacks and roll gybes then your not training hard enough
I just got on the UK National Circuit with my pretty old boat
I have some scratches on the surface of the hull so what should I use to get rid of them?
Also minor bits knocked out of the front (a few chips) waht should I be using to fill them?
