Well it was a cracking weekend,Saturday was a bit windy but Sunday saw blue skys and a flat calm river Mersey.
14 craft turned up.
Fishes
Eagle
Eagle 4
Ts3
Cp2s
Ts3
Bbv 4.
Usual breakages.p clips,mechanical and fibreglass stuff.
No man left behind.
BBQ and beer on the Saturday evening and bacon butties on the Sunday morning.
All this was only 15 (beer extra).
I myself left with a short list of improvements to the eagle.
All in all a genre at weekend with great people. Look forward to the next one.

My Vortex Sirocco was there both days and performed well apart from a fracture on an exhaust flange.
Got it trimmed to give me 32 knots.......... so happy with that on a cruising craft.

Did some repairs on one of them but never got to take it out.

I really like the Vortex lineup. Great machines & nice lines. I have seen the references to " it looks like a Dalek ".  ::)   Spat a bit of my coffee this morning when I spied the name on the side " Davros Dave ".....well done   8) ;)

I always liked the sirocco, it's got a very sensible configuration. I was surprised that they didn't do very well. I'd like to fly one to see what it's really like.
