the bear-away technique explained:

let some sail out, heel the boat to windward and the boat will... OH blast, lost the helm again!  One more time then!

i think phil has to be the winner on this one, pretty much my thoughts exactly as it happend, annoyingly we were leading the race and the f**king rs200 in the pic who was a lap behind decided to tack round infront of us  just as the gps hit 15kts, so we had to do an emergency gybe with lots of kicker on  and neither of us were ready, resulting in the dip shown. bloody wimps in rs boats tacking round a gybe mark pfffft. see lots of you at weston later

sorry,

I stuck the photo on the list last night but can't log on to the main site and acces the list from work.  it's not on my boat page but is on the list under 2657.  if you have time you are welcome to find it and put the correct path name in otherwise I will try again this evening.  I am more at home with sticky fingers than playing with computer software.

I take it this is the one;


To use an image from the wiki you need to rightclick on the picture when viewing it in the wiki and select "copy image location" from the options that apear(different browsers have slightly different text) go back to the forum and in the post you are writing paste the link. Then enclose it in the img and /img tags as shown below.
Code: [Select]

That is the one.  Keep the captions coming.  This was taken during the renewal of Tim's foredeck.  from a sticky point of view it is a lot easier to work when gravity is on your side and when you can see what you are doing.

Matt,

Your creative caption get's my vote. I assume you have a few photos now to set the ball rolling again!

Well I won't add a caption as it looks like we already had a winner but it looked to me like Tim was auditioning for a part in Mission Impossible 4!
