When the wind blows....

While the west coast was battered, Perth SC escaped the worst of this weeks gales with most boats staying put. Those that didn't, mainly, but not exclusively, Solos which had been propped up at the front so the water would drain, had swung round and dropped off their tyres or trestles but stayed upright. Even those tied down, which they should be, can topple over in a strong wind if you raise the bow far enough.
If your boat blows over in the park, not only might it be out of commission for weeks getting fixed, your neighbour's boat that it lands on could be too!
