2-3 Mach 2 try outs:
OK we now have some dates for the SoCal Mach 2 try out days. These will be held at ABYC Long Beach. The short sessions are intended for people who have never foiled before and are interested in getting a Moth. We sail inside the bay which is small but just big enough. There will be a mix of kids from the ABYC youth squad and people who contact me from here. We will use my personal boat, a brand new Mach 2. To request a slot on one of the dates below please email me: simonATcontextamericaDOTcom
Dates: 9th Feb / 30th March / 27th April / 18th May

Ok so now you know we have awesome boats but terrible taste in music. Standby for more updates, links, events and news over the next week. We’re back online and it’s not going to be dull. Back me or sack me. Oh and a big thanks to SailingAnarchy for supporting us so loyally while we briefed Executive Search to hire our new webmaster. There’s a piece on Ant Kotoun’s winter series in Charlston on SA right now.
PS: we love Sabots. Great boats and lovely people. And Oppies too
