First off, big Kudos to Gerald for coming up with the idea and building it. Was a little sceptical at first but seeing it in action I was sold on the concept. After putting the Terminator through the bottom (and pulling weed up from there), what weed doesn’t get wound on to the barrel floats free, ready to be collected by the ‘G Weeder’. Perfect!
Secondly the pics and vids look great of the ‘G Weeder’ in action (and Uncle G too of course 😉)
And finally, well done team, great work. You have made a big dent in ensuring that the Championships get the best possible conditions to sail in. Thank you.
Last word. There is still a patch or two we haven’t been able to get yet just on the other side of the fountain. Plan is to arrive a tad earlier (9am ?) on Tuesday and get the Terminator in close there and see if we can get rid of it. Ropes, bodies and rakes (and the G Weeder), all will be welcome for this one last push.
We can then lay a course similar to the one we’ll use next weekend and see how we go from there.
