A sunny Sunday with a steady winter wind from the west, about 4mph would be my guess, slightly less than forecast. Cloudless except for the high level line approaching from the west...

1.5s with race worked fine but I also put up the mid vent with those 'magic white spars'. It was also fine but required even longer armed input to keep up with the full sails, as would be expected.

I spotted a fraying top leader at the handle tying point on my current set of lines. It's as well to keep an eye on these as failure can be a bit serious especially as it will inevitably happen in higher winds. I think that I will have to set about making some new sets of leaders with the sleeved kevlar that we have in the bag. <grins> I have had it mind to make smaller steps but have not got around to it! Better to do it at home rather than 'in haste' out on the field...
