  1. Sorry bloody spellchecker, a Renault Kangoo is what I meant, could get a 6 metre sailbox in that
  2. I have a plain 35inch long swordsman hull with a brushless motor the line is 80 pound fishing braid I also have a nozzle around the prop to try and prevent the line being caught up, if you can get it floating line is the most effective, I have nearly 150 metres of line on a cheap fixed spool feel and a cut down old fishing rod
  3. Hi Richard, we have found the most effective way is to use the rescue boat to take a line out and found the casualty being the line back and then you can bring the casualty in by hand less likely to cause damage
  4. The Renault Man too and the fiat Citroen and Peugeot equivalents are very good for space in a smallish car
  5. Thank you Fleetwood and Shaun, had a great weekend, it was a real pleasure to sail a six metre at fleetwood, big lake cracking wind and great company, looking forward to next year's event already
  6. As Shaun says there are pros and cons both ways, and a sail which is set up for luff rings can be very easily converted to fit a groovy mast I am hoping to get to Setley pond next Wednesday all being well

  8. I would reccomend an RMG winch possibly with a self tensioning drum and the lines would be on a continuous loop there are pictures of this with the RMG winch instructions, there are other winches available like the PJ Sails one which would also do the job
  9. As no doubt somebody will say find a club near you and find out what they sail and when, sailing is a sport best done in company, also you should get advice and encouragement that way, the DR yachts are a good way in not too expensive, sail well and if you don't take to it a fair resale value
  10. Hi trying to get hold of 14 mms carbon groovy for a mast contact Peter Knigtly 0108 03782776
  11. Had a great day out in silly winds at the Bournville all comers today, surfing on a 2nd suit, thanks everyone who was there a great day guys

    Hi all have a great Christmas and New Year, looking forward to a lot of travel with Christina (my six metre) this year from Fleetwood to Dartmoor and points between, as well as the usual jaunts out to the east coast, keep an eye on the calendar and come and join in Mike Ewart CC
  13. Well done, there is an open this Sunday at Lee Valley, would love to see you there
  14. Well compared to some of the other classes a competitive six is generally a lot cheaper, unfortunately they are a bit rare on the ground at the moment keep an eye on the Six Metre website
