Amusing Sporting EpisodeWhile camping at a regatta in Whitby, my crew and I pitched a tent at the regatta site and used the trailer hitch of the car as one place to anchor the tent. The next morning we drove into town for breakfast and I fogot to untie the tent. It took about 500M before I realized what I had done. The real shame of it all was the free gin we had been storing in plastic cups from the party the night before was a write-off and our sleeping bags and all our clotes smelled like gin for the rest of the regatta.
Sporting InjuriesNo big ones so far. Lost of brused shins sailing the 470.
SuperstitionsCoffee is a ritual. I believe sailboat racing is simple when it is done well.
