Reply To: OK Worlds and a bit of a gossip
my last post was supposed to be my last post you old bugger.
wont be at medemblik this year – just think of the abuse I would have to take on the chin. Seriously though, the Goslo will ensure I sail through out the summer up and down the south coast. I am sure that once the current sailors realise I am unlikely to trouble them on the race course I am sure that the odd beer will flow.
Yes I would rather it was an OK but the option of 8 opens between Chichester Harbour and Weymouth is not on offer with an OK. The likes of Nick Craig, Charlie and Jim sail other classes and then come back to the beast for the big events. I did find it interesting that Dan Slater built his OK so that he could sail with his mates. We need more of that over here or at least events that people want to travel to and attend.
Now if you want to get me back for the worlds in 2022 – and thus the year before hand ( not sure the VC or FB would welcome that happening) then I need a cheap (v cheap) hein or odonnnel that is sound that I can fettle. Will then pop a ceilidh plus a 2nd hand north on the beast knowing full well that the rig could be sold post the worlds without a major hit to the wallet. Mr Tidd find me such a boat – not before next year though as I think that I would have some explaining to do at home.
hope the family are blossoming and that the little chap is keeping the old boy up half the night and then causing untold aggro the next day. Called happy families.
