You lucky aussies :)


Our northern hemisphere sailing is over for me...I'm not into sailing in the cold/frostbiting. I wish I could move down to the south for the winter...that would be awsome :)

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo yea
the radio control boat with automatic canting keel went for its first sail, went well, keel came outta the water a few times goin upwind, was blowing bout 10 knots, need to add more weight to the bulb & make the canard deeper, we found that with 1 kg on the end of the keel, it tends to get over powered & broached then capsized, ripped the seal of the canting arm off, & then the cord that goes to the motor to cant the keel decided to run over its self, causing the keel to stop working. luckily there was a powerboater near by & he came & put it back upright & i sailed it back in!!! but it worked, had a bit of leeway going upwind because of the bow canard not bein deep enough.
