I er did traumatise them somewhat tick, the jolly old wetsuit of joy split right up the butt crack, not having realised I then bent full over in front of the club house where they were trying to enjoy afternoon tea..

Unfortunately i tend to the commando persuasion under it.

I think I know what caused this Graeme - I've just been made to watch the final of The Great British Bake-off - and I've seen thru your use of Brendan as a pseudonym. I think you should have won - but all that cake testing obviously did not agree with your wetsuit

Talking of trauma & near extinction level events, I came very close to winning your book.

I know - why do you think I suggested they went in the way they did - to give you a chance of getting a copy without having to put your hand in your pocket! 

The comments seem to indicate strongly that perhaps you should put your hand in your pocket and buy a copy. Whether I'd risk the never-ending 'feedback' by actually selling you one is another matter.

I'm very sorry I missed it, jokes aside, it sounds you all had a fab time

Well I did read every dinghy book going back when I was trying to learn about sailing & sailing tactics, what I need now can't be learned in books I fear, but sailing amongst the guys and girls especially the girls was quite rewarding technique wise I should do it more often, close quarter racing like that gives more opportunity to study technique which I lack, I can't learn technique from books, never could.

A-ha. Splendid. Coming round at last to why puddle sailing can equal great racing. We have been trying to tell you for some time now...

Results of the fourth race on Saturday (the boat swap) can be found here.....
 
 
The names are the originals though, so I'm afraid you'll have to remember who sailed which boat!

Thanks Mike for winning my only race of the weekend, looks like I managed to pick a reasonable result for you too.
Everything I say is my opinion, honest
