My argo at Alhallows

Didnt have a good weekend was ment to launch on the saturday for the taster day but everything you can think of went wrong even the boat coming on the trailer on the way down rolled forward and came of the rollers! But by about 2.30 was finally ready to launch, just about to launch started the engine and the revs shot up and shot into gear, now i have one nakered gear box! So not to good for me

Why did it do that? (on both counts)

Unfortunatly boat racing can be like that. It's a steep learning curve sometimes, you'll get there and when you do you'll soon forget about your bad weekend. Keep you chin up.
