Torbay saturday 29th.......

Had a great day today down in torbay....

Lively conditions to say the least!
Big thanks to Old beardy for the "ride" in C-11.....my first time out in a P21!! well impressed......great handling boat, and driven by an extremely talented driver! I,m not the best passenger in the world but that was an experience!(funny smell coming from my dry suit when i took it off!!)

Soultime went really well considering it was rough as f***, acheived 61mph with a 23 tempest, but still having problems at WOT with fuel restriction

few pics ............ vid to follow when i can work out how to do it!
