What’s your WORST sailing experience?
Grafham Water for the inland UK championships with Jim Blyth in the 505 again, it was extremely gusty conditions hitting 30+knots, with the kite up we got instantly flattened in a big gust, and I had to swim back to the boat and explain why there was a human sized hole in the mainsail, and why I hadn’t dumped the spinnaker in the gust. Lesson learned!
Also, wet sanding the hull in preparation for a new coat of paint is the worst. But always forgotten come launch day!
