|Steve getting his boat ready|
As it was blowing a gale there was't much hope for the boat staying upright but we tried to sail it anyway.
The boat couldn't be steered and spent some time totally on its side due to the intensity of the wind. Steve had brought his racing boat down and had much more luck with that but he also had to slow his speed or find his boat inverted.
One thing discovered on the boat today was a sloppy rudder with too much play in it, and so on our return home I replaced the split pin with a screw and that took out the play.

So many extreme and natural disaster events seem to be happening around Australia at the moment. So sad for those who lost their homes today, for a news article on this you can go here but obviously this link may not be relative in a few days.
All the best to you all, regards.
