I will soon be celebrating the 30th anniversary of my first ever sailboat race. In the years since, I’ve raced inshore, offshore, big boats, little boats, and now RC boats.
But if you ever doubt that my first love is fast dinghies - you’ve just gotta check out these two videos of a 49er, I think on Lake Garda in Italy.
video 2 is niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

We had one buzz us yesterday while we were in the J80. Half of me just screamed ‘You need to get back into skiffs!!’ Enjoying big boats at the moment though I have to say, I’m alot sharper tacticaly than i used to be. Might have to buy myself somthing fast next just to blast around on!
Luff 'em & leave 'em.
