Distance Covered:

Levington wasn't too good. I arrived on schedule and Rog and Paul was out wallowing but they did have a few runs on 8.5M so they were reasonably happy.
I rigged 11M / Formula and I thought great flat water 12kts.
The bloody wind got up as I rolled out the 11M and Rog and Paul were blasting.

I thought here we f...cking go again, its now the top end of a F4, (no chance of hanging on to 11M unless I wanted to smack another 5.50 mast) I have the mast up the luff tube and dont know what to!?
I the rolled out 8.5M 15 minutes later the wind dropped! I now have 2 mast stuck up sails but none rigged.

The boys came in for a chat and I continued with the 11M. We had half a dozen runs planing then it died again. The water was saying goodbye fast so we had to pack up, but the wind never came back.
