    If i was too die let it be at sea its my been life, job,pastime,sport unfortunatly the people i race with would have to deal with the crap and the key board wankers putting their cents worth in Met a guy once aged mid 70s discharged himself out of a nursing home in UK ,he bought a yacht based himself out of the Azzores. I asked why does he sail by himself his reply "didn't want to burden anyone" if my number is up If one day and the doctor tells me my number is up soon I'M GOING FOR A LONG SAIL would enjoy it rather than stuck in a nursing home sport is sport we love what we do and i for am sure my family would understand if an accident happened

    I think RAGAMUFFIN 100 will get over the line 1st if whitty is still sailing ,he has learned/improving a lot since the start of the Volvo learning from the big boys now !!!!!! compared to the start also the mistakes they made sailing Rags's when launched and at Hammo. Where do think Richo would be if he was skippering a Volvo yacht ???

    Sailmakers always want to sell another sail ,we have a code Zero/reacher on 46 ft cat and yes it works in light winds with it sheeted in with barber hauler but after six knots the jib works fine. It comes down to how much you race in light winds ,against the compromise of sailing with another sail. Code Zero work sweet and if you can utilise it in light weather winds and also up as a reacher up to 15 knots go for it.

    How did the alchol fair no cracked bottles ? ,Did you have to shift the ballast or try lightning the load ? How about a selfie all sitting down below having a rumbo in that breeze Must be a record speed for a cruiser 22kt with all that ballast. Are you going up the inside of curtis island ?
