RC BOATING YACHTING Sailing at Puddleduck Sailing @ Puddleduck 2019 Puddleduck Vineyard Racing 03/12/2019 Reply To: Puddleduck Vineyard Racing 03/12/2019


Looks like I missed another interesting day @ the “duck”.

Loaded the car, then the rain bucketed down here, the wind was blowing a gale out on the water. Smallest rig I have is a “B” so like Stuart “I don’t sail in the rain”.

Unloaded the car and 30 minutes later the sun came out, the wind died down, Bugger! (I should know better)


Not sure about the “SMOOTH SAILING” Col mentioned about Thursday’s IOM sailing in his post.
