Hi Steve

I am sure that if you talk to Tim Hampshire, at Ripon,  he will Go through all the controls with you and give you some tips.

Also if you register the boat in your name and join the Class Association ( use the membership Tab on the website) this will give you access to the Members area of the website , then you will be able to access the Tuning guide and other useful articles on sailing techniques and info etc.

I see Chunky Monkey still has its Alverbank sails, I made way back in 2006 when the boat was first built. She was also exhibited at Falmouth Maritime museum for an special event.
When you register the boat you will get a  Measurement certificate which you will require to compete in open event and Championship races.

By the way do you still have  2708 in your ownership?

Hi Kevan
Yes I still have N2708,hope to have her back out in spring.
Both Tim and Bernard at Ripon have helped me out loads since buying China Girl and then Chunky Monkey.
I wil have to join the association so I can sail at Yeadon and York.
Regards Steve.
