    So, Saturday marked the final day of the Western Circuit, steering the Rekerring Dream, Ker32. Pretty decent showing for inaugural regatta - 5/2/3/3/2/3 in a fleet of 9 well sailed boats. The Esses were harder to beat on the first (lighter), weekend but we had the measure of them last Sat. Bill Bremner's Foxy was on fine form- scoring a string of firsts with Sarab Singh's Windsikher only getting Bill once as far as I remember. It was nice to take a few races off Windsikher actually, since that boat (S40IRC) is moded for the light stuff and has 8ft more hull than us. Our starting was really good and we were getting there with the numbers up and down. Considering the level of the crew pre-regatta, I was pleased with the way we were turning corners, however that is the area where we can make the most improvement. Nice bunch of guys - Jon (Bow), Piffy (Mast), Sam (Pit), Nev / Zhen (Trim), Woody (Main), Me (Helm), Varney (Nav), although I was re-christened 'Krueger' by the end of the regatta because I was beasting them around the coarse! The biggest surprise for me was the after-sail, which was done really well. SMU were taking it really seriously, with excellent media coverage - masses of free piss and bands, dancing girls, prizes, auctions - you name it! Several banquets as well! Good effort Singapore - highly impressed!

    I’m learning how to sail, taking lessons from a local yacht club on a river. Class meets three evenings a week, for four weeks. When I got there, I had trouble finding where the lessons were being held. Two other people were also wandering around. We found a woman by the pool who told us where to go. The class (14 students in all) was practicing tying knots. I was given a length of rope and shown how to tie a bowline and a figure-eight. We were told to take the rope home to practice with. There are four instructors, most of whom are volunteers. Instruction is somewhat informal. I used to be a teacher and I would have made handouts for the students. But that takes time, and volunteers are already donating time. Very glad to have my copy of Sailing for Dummies to refer to. Many people are not auditory learners; they need to see words and diagrams to remember things. The boats that will be used for the class are Zumas, Lasers, JY 15s, and a Capri 22. The instructors rigged up a Laser, a Zuma, and a JY 15, explaining the different parts of the boats, and showing where the equipment is kept. We were advised to purchase our own personal flotation devices, and given some suggestions as to what clothing and shoes to wear. I’ve been practicing my knots, and will go shopping today for my gear. Any advice before I go out on the water?
