First time my Yorkshireman was sailing
« on: June 15, 2008, 07:28:43 PM »

Hi

Just went home after 1˝ min. sailing. All was ready for the big event, batteries charged, boat, toolbox, transmitter etc.

Turned on the transmitter and the receiver, tested all function and set the Yorkshireman into the water. All seemed OK, made a short turn in the water, all functional.
My 3 year old son was curious bent over, felt down into the water and briefly touched the Boat.

ARRGH, had to let go of transmitter and pull him out of the water (nothing serious, only 30 cm deep), crying for mom, we had to pack all equipment into the car again and drive home. Didn't even get a single picture or any video from the first run.

Have to glue a few parts again that my son broke of the Boat. Next time ill go alone or take all family with me

Regards,
Tom

I was a similar child when footski sank my Garnock tug, came back home and got me to wade in freezing cold water up to my n^^Łts and retrieve it..... Only cos I was taller than Dad when I was 12..... Scarred me for life, had to call Esther
