Sooo, who will be reporting from the GC? We was spoiled last year with Phills reports from Zandvoort and expect no less this time around <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Looking at the entries, there are many there who I know for sure are literate <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Your dagger boards were working fine when this photo was taken. I'm actually leading the race <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> with Chris Field and Tom Taylor following. Now I'm going to stop gloating as it will all be different next weekend. Don't mention the downhaul!! ahhhhhhhhh <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />
I feel as if I'm being moderated as this is the second time I have failed to add an attachment!! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Sorry Mark, but that is positively not the case. I attached a picture to a post I made last night, so the forum software also works. Which kind of indicates that the problem might sit somewhere between the back of the chair and the keyboard <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

No worries, I think this image is best left to your imagination anyway as I certainly didn't have enough downhaul on.
But you were correct, it was me who was at fault as I have subsequently turned down the quality and it has now loaded.

If there is free wifi in the neighbourhood, I would be happy to post a report (if ofcourse the ice-T's don't keep me away from my laptop...).

A pity there are no Vipers present. No UK APHC dealer near Mumbles?

We will be arriving on Wednesday. I know Geert and Joanna will already be present. Any other crews that will go for a test sail on Tuesday?

Just to impress competition: <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4g7HKczJbp8 <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />

Great video Gill! Looking forward to sailing with you and Kathleen again, and meeting everyone else. Lets try to get out on Thursday. I need the practice-haven't been on the cat since July 6th. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Simon,

I'll also be taking my GPS with me. I know Geert normally will take his too. I would be nice to have some more sailors with GPS on board! Ofcourse I don't know how easy you can compare data....

Gill,

I will have my laptop with me, if you have a suitable data-cable (I have a Garmin unit with a round 12 pin plug) and have a data cable for it.

Do you have a data cable for your unit? The club has WiFi so we should be able to download a Driver if we need one.

Simon,

I have a data cable, but no serial port on my laptop. Do you happen to have one? I have all the software on my pc, so we should be able to transer if if necessary.
I have a Garmin GPSII (old :-) )

Do you know if we need any paperwork for the catamaran to cross the border between France and the UK?

I assume you mean an RS232 D type plug? If so i have a Serial to USB converter.

AS for paperwork, I don't think so.

Gill,

Will take also a laptop with me, and a serial to usb converter cable, so that should not be a problem.
If someone wants it, i also do have an old garmin gps 12, just don't have an extra watertight case for it.

See you soon, will start driving tommorow.

Please don't forget to bring some 's with you for the Severn Bridge. Otherwise, you'll have a 100km detour!

Geert, have a safe drive and see on on Wednesday (we arrive in the afternoon).

I also admit that I only talk to Kathleen while sitting on the boat...

Welcome to our world. I've known Mark about 10 years and he's maybe answered my calls twice... <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
