We have started the season with a lost rudder! does anyone wish to sell a spare or old one? Boat doesn't really justify a new one ... See moreSee less

Lost at Winter Regatta: Black drybag with clear panel and red sticker. Probably left in dinghy park/near tallyboard. Not named but contains my coaching kit including sighting compass, wind anemometer and a square plastic lunchbox containing screwdrivers and repair bits.

Hopefully someone has picked this up thinking it was theirs and realised later they didn't recognise the contents. If you've picked this up accidentally I'd really appreciate getting it back as it has my event coaching kit inside. If you've found it, please let me know, or drop it in anonymously to the race office at the Inlands. Many thanks to all.
