Breakfast meeting with race team.

View isn't bad....

 

20210812_193556.jpg

When I had to stop playing rugby a drinking buddy asked a mate and me to crew on his racing yacht.

TBH I was a bit sceptical at first (thought we would just be ballast 🙄which I guess we were to start with) it was a month or so till we clicked as a team but it has to be said, I never knew you could have so much fun going so slowly without any bodily contact.

Used to sail out of Lymington a couple or 3 times a week, I was the kite man and occasionally on the bow, panicking 😁. Man a lot of people took it very seriously, the Tuesday evening series from RLYC in particular. The finish line was opposite the club which meant white knuckle racing up the river sometimes, dealing with moored boats, pleasure boaters and the IOW passenger ferry. 

Not for the faint hearted 🤪 ironically the most nail bitingly close finish we had was kedging over the line at Yarmouth.

Good times 😊😃

I rarely race these days... when I do it's mainly in a 30 footer in the clubs Thursday evening cruise race. Ironically, I'm usually asked when the winds are heavier....! We dont take it too seriously and laugh most of the way round, but the boat's rule is no beer until we pass the beacon going to the finish...

I do more dinghy race management at the moment, either committee boat stuff, or this week in the race box co-ordinating the safety of 300 odd competitors.  Forecast says 19-20 knots with gusts of 30.... today might be a bit stressful!

Friends asked me to come down to Puerto Vallarta Mexico for a month or two.  I guess, I’ll monitor the situation in LOS for the next month and then make a decision.  I would like to be somewhere warm and fun for the winter.

Well didn't think I would be at an airport anytime soon but here we are. All checked in and waiting for our 0915 flight to Rhodes, Greece.

2 weeks of searing heat, beautiful beaches, great restaurants serving fabulous Mediterranean  food, 2 swimming pools in hotel plus the delicious Mythos beer.

Can't wait.20210813_070216.jpg

My wife just told me "Sometimes, you're kind of lazy" I was astonished, I handled it well.

I told her to f**k off LOL! Then just arrived in my "Man Cave" and saw A-Yeon do this drum solo! I feel better now. 

Sad.................................But True LOL!

Reminds me of a visit I took once to Dumfrise Scotland. Walking out in the morning when the tide was out. I'd never seen anything like that. Fascinating. And an absolutely wonderful part of the world.

Wondering what will be first, the next lockdown, or troops back in Afghanistan due to it spawning the latest Al Qaeda/ISIS mob who are orchestrating attacks in the West.

Shambles!

Just so you know, when Metallica plays this song live, Lars takes off his shirt. We should be so lucky A-Yeon would follow suit😍
