27/01/2013 Blackheath

I did not notice that the cable car across the Thames was not operating this morning on the way to Blackheath.  This, apart from flags along the way, would be an indicator that the close isobars on the weather map were an accurate forecast.
 
So it was Xtra Vent with 4 wrap that kept things sane as Jacob called some close moves in what would have been very challenging conditions for any other sail/spar combination.  Counter rotations were the flavour of the day in linear format or paired.  Curiously we still managed to back-up during flying spells.  The sunny conditions were a complete contrast to last weekend's snow cover.
 
We learned during the week that the Exmouth event will not take place this year.  We have tentatively planned a 'Super Sixteen (or 12)' event on 16th-17th March but have not yet decided on the venue.  Also planning 'something' 'somewhere' between the Portsmouth and Bristol events at the end of August, 27th - 30th that is!
