Were back from the IOM Nationals, snowed under with things to do and feel like we are walking through treacle, but we’re getting there!
The IOM Nationals were great fun and I finished a creditable 55th out of 80which with no boat time at all until the day before the event I was pretty stoked with. The winds were light or very light which made for some testing conditions.
I had a seriously good run on Monday morning racing from E fleet right up to B fleet in the penultimate race and whilst I could have settled quite well in C fleet it was a little too late by then, hey ho, the company was good and the sailing was fun but some more practice would have helped!
So I landed back at Soch Sails HQ last Tuesday and spent most of the day tidying out a very wet van and sorting out a lot of wet kit. For some reason this seemed to take most of the week and it seemed that I got very little actual work completed.
That said we are in the process of sorting out a proper online shop for our goodies including all our Soch Sails inventory, our DF65 lines and our RC Laser lines too, this will make it easier for you guys to order from us and easier for us to manage our work flow.
A short camping trip away over the weekend and we hit the ground running this week and have already sent two orders Stateside and several to the UK, another busy day tomorrow will see some more orders going out to UK customers and hopefully towards the back end of this week we can launch the first section of the new shop.
Next week we’ll be prepping for the RC Laser Nationals which are being held at Medway RC Laser Club at Barton’s Point Country Park, so another outing for Thunderbird 2 and some beer crates again then!
Sorry for the long post, lots to catch up on.
