Earlier this season, these pages reported on the latest addition to the fleet, a still unnamed 2.4m Seahopper - the model known as a 'Nifty Fifty'. Thanks to the reaches of Facebook and the Seahopper Owner's Group, several fellow owners converged on the wonderful Horsey Mere for a weekend rally. I was only able to attend on the Saturday and, even then, had to make a double trip over having left half of the kit back home in the garage... I think an equipment checklist may be in order...
The following video gives a fair reflection of the day.
Winds were light but not inconsequential - probably for the best, since the sailing experience is very different from the Drascombe experience: much more responsive, very unstable but, in its own way, just as enjoyable!
