  • It was the late 1980's. I was not on that race, but knew him as we were in the same class and Feanor and Zoe were our opposition!




  • Bardsey Sound can be interesting, I was heading through with the kids, a nice current under me after a rough enough crossing, making about 10.5kts (first time seeing double digit SOG on my little first 25.7) when I spun through about 120 degrees, I though it was my concentration going after being hammered about for the last few hours, kids a bit freaked out so I started the engine and took in the kite, then it happened again, turned out to be whirlpools just starting to form and not quite breaking the surface yet, apparently it gets very lively in the right conditions!

    I remember sailing from Pwllheli to Holyhead and somebody f**ked up their tide timing. Went through Bardsey Sound, turning north for Holyhead and spent a couple of hours getting nowhere. At one stage we were sailing backwards!




  • Bardsey can be horrible. Another casualty coming through the Sound back in the ‘80’s was a serious leg/knee injury to Clare Hogan on ‘Angel’, owned by her father TP ‘Tommy’ Hogan & Earnest Goulding. Sadly Clare, a former Commodore of the Alfred, died in the last week (April 10). Angel (previously Angel of Islington) was a Dick Carter design and unusually at that time was a laminated hull.
    (Sorry for off-topic, move to 'Chat'?




  • As a nipper I made the mistake of bedding down in the forecabin returning from an ISORA to Pwllheli in a Sigma 38.. got as far as Bardsey and was rudely awoken on the ceiling as the boat came off a wave... :D:D:D

    As a slam dunk to stop the humour rolling in a thread titled "Funny..." , Masterful.

  • You'll prob need to zoom in a bit...... but our fleet starting on a beat, meanwhile the cruisers about half a mile away on a dead run in the same direction.

    The wind was just mad yesterday afternoon!!!




  • What's with the Irish pennant? Is that the line boat?

    I was out for a sail yesterday morning and gave up around 1pm. The wind was nuts as it did not know what it wanted to do! One minute an off shore wind, next minute calm, next minute an on shore wind....and repeat. Could see boats a hundred metres or so away with different wind conditions all the time. Ended up motoring back in!

    That's the start line for the Flying Fifteens in the foreground.








  • I used to love that scene with Laurie Smith..

    I remember being at the London Boat Show in I think 1996/7 (just before the Whitbread where Smith was captioning Silk Cut). There was a media reception thing, hand shakes etc, and upon seeing him there in all the pomp, my dad turned to me and whispered

    "Would you look at that f****k*n eeejit"

    I was nearly in tears with the laughter......
