Team Aquaholic 29er

It's not every day I get a phone call praising my action photography so I'll mark it by posting another picture of the boys, steaming along, spinnaker blazing! Greg holding on tight as Lewis applies as much power as he can.

We need a new set of sails for the 29er, so if there's any enterprising souls out there who'd like to sponsor them before they become famous, now is your chance. The boys will advertise your business tastefully on their sails or the hull and you'll become a very important part of Team Aquaholic.

Running Club

She's designed posters, made badges, written rules and managed to rope various kids in school to join her running club. Tonight she tells me that Mr S if offering to help set up a course for her. What an organiser she is!

LTSC Perishers

 Lewis and Greg leading the charge on the start line at LTSC on Sunday. Photo by Beverley at LPB Aerial Imagery captures the drama nicely of a congested river... Often there's as many as 40 boats on the startline.

Startline action shot from yesterday, with extra drama provided by the cloudscape which brought hail and chilly winds to Hayling. Six o' clock start and the boys were active until we were writing up notes on the learns form the day at nine o clock in the evening. You can't ask for more than that in terms of commitment can you.

Today the boys have been at LTSC, racing again, but the winds were hideous. They met some squad 29ers from Pwllheli who after doing what we did, had to drive back to the Lleyn peninsula - that is commitment (as Lewi pointed out to me!)

Hayling Island SC

Spent the day at HISC again today, as Lewis had been able to arrange a day's training with some other 29ers. A very productive session was had for them, and I was in the training boat learning myself and seeing them in action. As the photos download I like the look of this one which captures a dreamy moment (for me at least)

Awesome sunset whilst we ate wood fired pizza and chips from the wagon on the beach... The Best! So good I didn't even need a beer to wash it down, which is just as well as my eyes were closing by the time we departed...

Sailing at Lymington tomorrow, the last of the Perishers series...

Old Harry rocks..!

A moment of gay abandon on the beach at Studland. It would be nice to get down here early one morning and see the warm sunshine light up those rocks, I figure I could easily spend a whole day in the dunes, lunch at the Pig etc. Now where's my diary.

The Pill Box

Greg rose to the challenge of getting inside, Miranda demonstrated her ease with which to make an excuse.

Old's Harry's Tonka Toy

Walked from the chain ferry down to Old Harry's Rocks today across the dunes. This was coffee break time at the cafe on the beach, having just had a conversation with a family about Tonka toys. Check out the sunshine; it's sunnier down South! February is consistently one of my fave months of the year...

29er The most fun you can have when wearing Speedos

Just in case you are wondering why the boys want to do this every weekend...

By popular demand... here's Gregory!

This is one of two pieces that Greg will be playing at his next music competition. This is Valse, a Hungarian waltz, and the other will be Malaguena.

OK so I should have used a flash, but just look at the sunrise. Sailing - we are go!
