Atum is without a crew for sailing on Sunday (16th)
« on: September 13, 2012, 09:17:46 AM »
It appears that my weekend of sailing has been scuppered by a brace of unwilling crew. I am intending on doing the races at Hayling on Sunday (16th 10:55 warning signal)
Does anyone want to crew for me? or put up with my terrible crewing while they helm?

It is a shame that we are not around this weekend or I would have suggested press ganging Georgia.
I took her out last weekend in 15kts and she stayed quite calm.

I did not stay calm when the kite was coming down slowly and I could see the bottom.

Are you around for the Pennant races next weekend. 2 races each day, in the bay if conditions are suitable.

I will try and see if I can get a crew together for that. I have no plans currently and want to get in some good sailing before it gets cold so it sounds like a good idea. I also hope we can cope with the waves a bit better after Pwllheli.

Nigel, I fear that keel hauling them would induce too much drag and I'd go nowhere.

Still no takers?

Okay, change of plan. I'm going to play with tractors instead.
