Hi Zooma thanks for your kind words. I am OK with the fitting out but I would think you are well ahead of me for competition.
I did some formal MYA training with dinghy sailing but I did not enjoy the close racing with dinghies.
I used to go sailing with a friend who had a posh yacht and I liked helming her but I realised I wanted to watch a yacht sail. So it was modelling for me.
Our son takes me aboard his yacht, he is a Yachtmster and I have been impressed with his control of emergencies of which there have been two with me aboard. I have a Competent Crew from MYA but my knees can be dodgy!
So a bit of rain and wind come as normal, I even enjoy them. Last year we were caught in an almost zero visibility storm, horizontal rain and screaming wind.
He was calm and in charge and I did as I was told! We got back OK and I was completely wet, socks, underwear, the lot and I had the right gear on as well. But exciting stuff!
