The other clear requirement is that you come from "Down Under"! I cannot really explain it.
but I suspect that most Aussies have been brought up sailing in breeze so it's more natural.
Yes Simon you are probably very correct... add this to weather conditons in aus which means nearly year round sailing... and i guess "daylite savings" in summer as well means you can sail till 7pm or later in a perfect +20knt seabreeze... as well as the perfect locations around aus, and dont forget the older iconic classes that where designed for this type of weather like the VJ, VS, Flying Ant, Cherub etc etc... Simon why dont you ask Woody about the old VJ class... many world and national champs grew up learning on this crazy little boat... Chris Nicolson is one name that most people here would know
Like they say "Australia, the lucky country"
well done to John H. for his world moth champ win in his first attempt
