It's because most of us grow out of kiss-chase eventually....


And grow up to be kiss-arses and smart alex's.

it's 'smart alec' or 'smart aleck' actually, but that's just proving your point, on one at least.

As for the other, what you do in the comfort of your own home is your business Duncan.

Mate - you're forgetting... I'm the one who prefers the rimless design... but each to his own.

Well we had a fun one today, a Solution has appeared and I was trialling a new gizmo for my sheeting system, something I'd cobbled together from a kite surfing spreader bar and bits, but it got off all a bit flustered, the five went with the boat still on the trailer, then my system proved too resistant so I had to re rig it on the water, barely made the start, not exactly 2nd rank but was out nosed by those pesky shouty Miracle girls, they tacked off luckily and I turned a Port tack solo around until the bank loomed then it was myself, the Solution and the Buzz rounding, so it doesn't go that bad, after a couple of laps, the Solution had the lead over the water by quite a margin.
The Buzz was busy turning itself into a candle factory and they dropped off, so it was just the two of us, on paper I should be ahead and wasn't so that had to be rectified which eventually it was, after a couple of bad offwind decisions trying to dogleg a leg which should have been just dead run by the lee by the Solution.
The EPS even went on to stretch its legs and gave me a 2nd, which I'm sure might have been better if they hadn't finished the slow boats behind us on what was to prove to be the slowest leg as the wind shifted a fetch into a beat and dropped a bit, I don't think that's a fair thing to do to be honest, i've no idea how they calculate it, it's all very well grand prix finishing after the lead boats have gone through and they're a lap behind, but when they win despite not doing the same course we did, much muttering in boat park ensues..
The Solution however straight out of the gate new boat a third place, beat the Lasers, Solo's and the Streakers, I'm definitely going to have a serious look at it next time when I'm not fiddling with gizmos.
