Dinghy report 6th Dec 14

 

After two weeks of being hammered Craigie tried another idea as the Laser pack gathered around like wild wolves baying for blood Craig stood proudly alongside his new toy . Poking out of the grass it looked like a Dart 15 , calls of you must be joking it hasn't been out for years ,where's the dagger boards and looks a long way to fall and I'm not rescuing that Craig grimed  as only Craig can .

At least it took the pressure of Dave C who had promised to bring his new RS Aero along but just said didn't have room in the car we'll have to wait for his next visit , quess how big the main is on an Aero  only 8.2 bigger than Phil's monster Laser rooster rig .


An ex Commodore turned up to man the orange rib only Washie back to his roots from sailing other peoples big boats . Dave Battye rules  supremo turned up from his sick bed caused a look of worry on the face  of  Mike Thorne back from playing golf and riding motor bikes when he recognised him .Mike had forgotten his watch and his hickers  were last seen in Bermuda
