The sun rose, just as we started the proceedings. Hawk gave us a little speech about the Tom-28 Max, and Qyv told us about her boat. Lots of questions were asked buy an eager crowd.

The vendor was then turned on and some people bought the boat, others took the demo which was set up for one hour to allow for some fun racing.

We raced a couple of races on the North Sea Olympic Course. Most people liked the boat. What I found was that you need to have your camera set to wherever you are most used to setting it and that you need to get your gestures sorted out.
