Storm Tactics - Parachute Anchor on Fleabay!


22 Jun 2005

It's been a long time since I visited this forum.

I did the 2008 JAC and it was one of the best experiences of my life.

Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly clear to me that any chance I have of going again in the next 10 or 15 years has diminished beyond the point where I can justify hanging on to gear that I collected at great personal and financial cost for the 2008 trip.

I have a couple of items on eBay at the time of writing: One is a trailing log that you can find under my 'other items' the other is a Parachute Sea Anchor.
The eBay item No is: 184153499490 and it ends on Sunday.
Fleabay Auction for Para Tech Sea Anchor

You will all have engaged in the endless debates about Storm Tactics - I took this with me but ended up running before a drogue (lots of sea room) so I've not used it.

Good Luck if you are looking to complete a Jester Challenge - Profoundly worthwhile!
