Good to catch up with everyone and sail Kirby. Frustrating day for me on the water. Tried an SDM Flex top in the Hot sails, wiped out and my weight jacket exploded sending all the lead to the bottom.
Sailing without lead now I'm 74kg is like riding a 50cc scooter, doesn't matter how hard you will the thing to go faster, the power just isn't there. The Hot sail 'gps' is much better on the RDM mast although perhaps some time/tuning/spacers could make the SDM work. 

Best 500m run
