      It was another pleasant winters morning for sailing @ the Canal today.

      5 DF65’s & 1 Mt Gay 30 made up the smaller than usual fleet today but we did have a visit from Uncle G, first on the water with his camera boat & then in person.

      RonB also dropped by for a short while to say hello.

      The winds started to swing Westerly (down the Canal) as predicted just before we packed up & headed off for the lunchtime BBQ. As that concluded & we all headed for home the predicted rains started (but only just).

        Sitting back with a cuppa on the computer table watching PREDATORS  video whilst coughing up tadpoles was a joy to watch  until that pesky UNCLE G turned up  just waiting to see who he bounced ………..  several scenes he was so menacing  I presume he had ago at a few but it has been edited out  most likely  A wee bit more work on the PROTECTOR  and we will all be safe again on the canal  ……..excellent video   young PREDATOR SIR

      It was a perfect breeze for sailing today. I have 2 qs

      1. What is the link so I can get a sail number?

      2. I need a new rubber band for my df65 winch system. Is hobbywarehouse the only source?

        Just realised that you can reply via your post, see my post below …

        google”DF racing world Aus”, links to register / obtain sail numbers should be on first second page

      I must say what an enjoyable day at the canal, being able to film the boats in peace, and not having to worry about being rammed every couple of minutes,

      Not sure what was different today, only that there was someone at the “BLOATER’S” end was missing?

      Here is my video including all the gentlemen sailors.

      DOES THE meaning of the word gently  gently  mean nothing to you UNCLE G   if my putt putt was sinking or upside down there is no way I would ask for assstance from you There is another speed you can apply when pushing a boat to shore other than rolling him under you boat and hoping it will catch your rudder    dear dear me
