Try being the one who corrects everyone else!

E.G. Where should the ' go in corrects??

You may not know, I may not know, but someone will and will tell you, which is why the reply should read

Try being the person who influences others

You've got your job cut out with our new friend; her spelling mistakes are bigger than her (sorry Helz, it's cheap I know, but your sharp public-school wit will find a suitable cutting reply, I'm sure) .

I admire anyone who is brave / stupid enough to stick there head above the parapet, but do expect to be shot at - especially if you start shooting first

I can cope with having my spelling and gramatical errors corrected. It is good for me I might actualy learn something useful rather than apsoluty useful peices of information such as how to work out a break even point or find out if a coastline is concordant or discordant.
luv Helz

Didn't a basking shark bring a RS800  to an abrupt stop at Prestwick in 2005?

Have seen Dolphins within arms reach at Stonehaven sailing out to the race course on the 5.9 a couple of years ago and plenty of seals at my home club Dalgety Bay SC

I'm sure all you contender sailors are well aware that Looe - venue for this year's nationals - is the shark fishing capital of the UK!

Can we have protective nets like they had in Sydney for the 2000 games pretty please ?

That's a good idea - Looe needs to do something to protect the sharks.

I remember one memorable Scorpion nationals at Sidmouth. Busy planing along on a tight reach (no kite, it was blowing 25-30kts) and a school of dolphins decided to swim through and around the fleet.

Was one of those truly magical moments see a dolphon swin within inches of the boat....well it was until the helm started hollering at me to hike out harder (slave driver she was).
