Our new sail certainly created a stir at Grafton today. The sail is so distinctive that everyone could not help but notice it. Before the race a number of people commented that it is a very attractive sail.

After the race there were a few wry comments...
"Did the green batten pockets make you go faster?"
"You'll know what sort of boat you're sailing now."
"It could come in handy later on if you get dementia."

All in good humour of course.

Hi Michael,

Glad to hear you've updated your boat, I will be interested to hear what number it is and look at its history.

Some people reckon two Mossies are too many for one person, but not me!

Hi Michael,

No 489 is not listed in the Register so no information on your new boat.

Our old mast does not really bend enough for the new sail so I am building a new mast which will take a while. Some of us from Grafton are going to sail through the Winter and so I am looking forward to trying the new mast and sail together at some stage before next season starts.

Regards,
Greg.
