Sunday never really dawned, id describe it as hazzing in to view.

Robin and Jamie arrived at draycote early as Jamie was OD (didnt do anything as it was fogged off) we waited for tom and the arrival of Dans Boat.

At the crack of 10:30 Tom appeared from the fog to the west with boat in behind. as he went for a wee me and Robin unpacked everything, in the hours that followed we managed to stick a rig on, work out all the subtle differences that come with a different cherub.

By the end of the day, all rigged up and ready, the fog still hadnt moved. oh well, excitement levels have been turned up all the way to 11 for next week.

It was rather funny when people come up for a look and asked questions like 'why does your mast split in to two below the goose neck?'
Thanks

Great Purchase, an underused Banshee good to see her back on active duty.
