This year looking a lot better, we could be back to normal.
Going to be looking for a single hander, probably a 'Solo' or a 'Laser', sold all mine last year.
Hoping to do a series of opens, with camping nearby and a good pub with food, hopefully a couple of pubs, shop and a cafe, fingers crossed for sunny weather and brisk winds, good company.
Happy New year.

Thought you were a fellow 'proper'weight, 67-72kg, better get a Streaker. Better still get a D0. HNY back

That’s Radial county, fraction of the price and less depreciation.

Been offered a full spec Topaz, raceX sail, two handed sails with stayed mast, never sailed one, owner said it is a modern fast Skiff.

Forgot to say its got a spinnaker too, he uses it with the raceX sail, easily beats the Lasers and Aeroes at his club, must be fairly competent if he can solo and use a spinney.

But you won’t find any opens it even class racing. You’d be better with a Laser (Masters circuit) or Solo if you want to go to events.

Or a 100 obvs

Topaz Race X might be "fun" in a blow, but from what I have seen of them, they are beyond s***e in the light stuff.
