I spotted an alternative style of bags to the conventional that we use.
The bags pops open and closes with a bit of hand pressure. The ‘rib’ on the top that supports the bag is made of batten like material which is fitted in tension.
It’s tidy and suits if you want good vision to the rig tension markings on the mast.
I still prefer the standard Goacher / P&B bags as the stiffness in this Aussie alternative could mean pain in rushed kite stowage and the kicker could hold them closed
Note the branding, Aussie wit!
De ja vu! Delayed start whilst the breeze built. One race in 4-7 knots.
The Goach provided a masterclass and left us all in his wake, with the exception of Dave McKee who also showed his class.
I think this high pressure system is here for the rest of the week. No need for toe straps this week!
