The green eyed monster

I can’t help but look at all the news and views coming from Oregon and feel like I should be there.
I made my choice early in the year that the Worlds was going to be too much but had no idea that the rest of the season would go so well. I’m on the fence about Dubai too as I’m holding out for the worlds in Aus…
While it looks like it’s too windy for sensible sailing the competition looks hot. I’m not going to bless the internets with a form guide, but I’d love to see someone like Scott take it as he’s a nice chap and always tells it like it is.

I’ve only been sailing twice since the Nationals and have since sold the Ninja on, as I’m going to be pretty busy for the next 6 weeks and not get much sailing in. I think Fat Bottomed Girl will get dug out of the shed at BCYC until I get a new boat up and running for myself in the Autumn.
Bristol Moth Squadron seems to be holding up nicely though in my absense with Martin going out and getting a 25knot personal best and Alan back out enjoying his sailing after some knee problems. Chris Bishop is borrowing my sisters still unsold Axiom 3 and getting to grips with it and a likely new Mothy in the shape of Simon Hindley who has picked up Paul Haydens old Prowler 3 and will hopefully be getting involved.

Ninja’s 2 and 3 are now down at Stokes Bay with their new owners Kevin and Jo who are fast coming to terms with Moth sailing on the Solent. Now he’s got his own Kevin has a whole line of interesting thoughts on taking the boats forward…
