What does a sailor do when he is at home??
Work on the house of course…
The latest instalment in the renovations at Avalon Parade is our new backyard Cabin, or as Toby calls it “my cubby house”. (more…)
The worlds finished yesterday on nice terms for us. We scored a 4th for the race and moved up two spots to third overall. Tito Gonzales of Chile won the event with Shark Khan taking second. We were only seven points bvehind the winner. (more…)
Not a good one for us today. Conditions more like Kiel than San Francisco Bay. There was no fog, but plenty of cloud. The seabreeze never got going. We had a shifty and patchy 10 knot sou-wester.

More on than the early settlers today here in San Fran. Just for a change, it was quite windy (again) and we had two races. (more…)
Another tough, scrappy day for us. Finished 12th after being as deep as 25th at the first mark. More fantastic sailing conditions. Up to 20 knots by the finish. (more…)
Not a stellar result for us on Day 1 of the regatta, but we survived it better than a bunch of competitors. Tha day was marked by the disqualification of several big names due to being over the stat line early. They included Denis Conner, Vince Brun, Craig Healy and Jeff Pate (all of whom finished ahead of us in the race). We placed 7th after all of that. (more…)
