Wow - I bet he got well shacken when the bow came down again.

You are very organised - I can never remember to bring my camera.
I don't suffer from insanity...I enjoy every moment of it.

That's one of the good things of being a girl! It's amazing the number of things I carry in my handbag.... and I never go anywhere without my camera.

If you think Jerry got shaken when he landed (he wasn't, although he bent his mast a little later that day Wink) what do you think of our rescue crew?

Try sailing a skiff on the fourth  (Scotland, near Edinburgh, Port Edgar and Dalgety Bay), last year our Regatta got called off in 30+ knots of wind, couldn't see where we were going due to waves.......Hats off to Ian Renilson, Gav Homer & Bunion for being able to sail (MPS & I14s respectively).

Yeah that's Ian Renilson of Contender fame, doing really well in the MPS now. Have you heard of Neil Rosie as well?
