All you T sailors and fans..... Attach your best Tornado Pics here.

Attached would have to be one of my favorites. This is taken on Sydney Harbour. AUS 2000 Darren Bundock and John Forbes. From memory, Bundy injured his sholder quite bad and required physio just before heading over to Europe.

I have lots of Tornado pics that I took during 2002 National Championships held in Dunedin. Was in a chase boat. If you like these, I can post others.

no gary it works, you just linked the html page instead of the image itself, which Martin-Ranget has tried to circumvent you from obtaining, but since I'm l33t h4x0r I got the image for you:

There are 2 things I find disturbing about that pic :

It appears that the tiller extension is dragging in the water, which means that it`s not in your hand !
It also appears that your left foot is ON the rudder, if you add these together I must assume that foot-steering is the latest technique to sailing the Tornado downwind ?

Or is this how Torrie sailors deal with the MASSIVE amounts of leehelm they must be getting, what with their centreboards being behind the front beam & all that ?
(Don`t mind me, I`m just kidding.)
Torrie is still the most beautiful boat ever built, nearly 40 years later.
Attached pic is of a baby Tornado (16ft Mosquito)

Cheers
Steve.

It is quite common to toss the tiller extension overboard and stearing with the parallel pole between the rudders instead (Dang, what was the name of that thingie again!!). Check most Tornado downwind pictures from the last year, and you will se this is the 'rage'.
The same goes for the foot placement, getting the weight as far back as possible..

Lee helm is not bad at all with the gennaker up..

I guess Stephen has some comments about this as well ?
