The International 14 sailors wrote a letter of complaint to the club because we won by so much at the RNLI race. Their prerogative I guess, but last Sunday liquidated their argument as in the light stuff I didnt make the start on time despite leaving the beach early, and I got overtaken by a Topper on the first leg.
But there you go. In handicap racing, sometimes you're the pigeon... and sometimes you're the statue.
I guess everyone is worried about the Glyn Charles pursuit race coming up, where there are some great prizes, but I wont be there, I'm in Italy for a week.
Anyway I'm thinking a bit more about the Worlds and have booked a cool little cottage on Portland Bill, right next to the light house. Not unusually for a light house its on a cliff and it did dawn on me that the bedroom might illuminate every few minutes...which puts me on high alert.
Last time that happened I had to buy the negatives.
Anyway I'm sure it will be fine, but if you sleep walk, you're fucked. And as the particulars said, it's possible it might be noisy when its foggy..
A wild party in London on friday night left me minus several brain cells and despite my best intentions I missed the last train home..by eight hours. I slept on a bench and woke up with a slight dusting of snow down my left side...
Anyway its all good training.. for Grafham Water open meeting this weekend.
