What a fantastic effort from Tim Fells - daily updates keeping us not there up to speed and leadimg after 3 days - top effort!!
All he needs to do now is keep Deepy out of the pub.....................!!

Keeping Deepy out of the pub - now that is mission impossible!

Thanks for the comments. Salcombe week is a fantastic advert for the Merlin class so we need to share with as many people as possible

Dave and Pip have won!!!
They won this morning in real style - quite light.
PM it blew its tits off! Matthew Biggs and Ben were awesome, Tim and Deepy had to win to stay in contention. They did well but not enough.
Superfast Jellyfish exploded at the start but flew after they got it fixed

That went a bit wrong.
What I ment to say is it flew superfast when they got it fixed

Great reports but looks like Seldon and AJ are going to be busy. Afternoon looks like the Salcombe slammers resided in town during the last race today.

On behalf of the association, a big thank you to Tim Fells for writing a report every day. With everyone knackered or desperate for the pub, this must have been tough to be disciplined enough to sit down and write carefully every night. Thank you Tim.

More of John Murrells photos added to Y&Y now. See report for a beauty! Plus more on the fotoboat site I assume.

How did he get that mast mid-snap?  Was it grabbed from video or just a lucky shot?

It comes down to right place, right time, right equipment...............

I actually have the whole sequence from the gust hitting, bow going under, mast exploding with the kite still pulling, right through to the one with Tom and Jono getting sorted out and Megan looking decidedly p****d off.

And no it isn't a video.

And I should have added that if you look carefully you can see the spreaders in mid air.

Sorry Megan, put your favourite tree did't have a preservation order on it!
