It's arrived!

After a long gestation my new Rockpool GT has been delivered! She's absolutely beautiful- a sparkling blue deck with a couple of big starfish and two wee ones. Unfortunately today was not a wonderful one for her maiden voyage. There was a bitterly cold wind, up to force 5 in Elie Bay, with some snow. Her first 200 yards of paddling were distinctly rough, coming out from behind the harbour wall into first surf, then reflected waves. She behaved perfectly, though. A short haul across the bay, some fiddling with foot rests, and a blast back downwind was enough, given the weather.
Angus and Morgan took the pictures.
