Sail on the right side, sleep on the left.
Have you ever noticed we go left on the first beat, right on the next two? I can't think of an event in recent times where this hasn't happened. Apart from events at Hayling, where you can't. Otherwise you bash into a neighbouring county. Same with The Gorge if I recall, and that may be good. Odd though isnt it? Especially with all those books written on tactics. Maybe I'm wrong and I'm imagining it, I dont know. Perhaps this is just a slow news day.
And talking of slow..
Slowly I'm getting my Mach 2 together, there's no hurry but I may even sail next weekend, but then I may not. There seems so much other stuff to do these days. I went to see four great bands last night. I'm now deaf, and briefly was covered in piss.
Anyway the Mach 2 will be at the Dinghy Exhibition on the Foiler stand 7th/8th March. Come and see us.
Thank you to Zhik for asking me to join the Zhik team for 09. I cant think of a better clothing partner. I feel very lucky as I think their gear is so good I would have scrimped and saved to buy it anyway.
PS. Deep breath and fingers crossed for John and the boys on the Rag for the final races of the JJ Giltinian (2009 18ft skiff World Championship)
