Sailing Stuff and a bit more of the snow stuff
We are having a nice relaxing day today which is good. This photo is the view from Mounts Bay Sailing Club where Grant and Bruce started sailing at a very early age - first on Mudlarks -
Since then he has sailed in lots of yachts including of course his latest 18ft Skiff - SLAM
This year besides other events he has had a 1st in the Laser SB3 Worlds, a 3rd in the 18ft Skiff Worlds and a 2nd in the 18ft Skiff Europeans. It is wonderful for him that MBSC has nominated him for Male - Sailor of the Year 2011 in WA - the results to be announced on Friday night. We think he deserves it - let's see what happens. He has been instrumental in a fleet of 18ft Skiffs being able to sail at MBSC this season and is serious about giving something back to the sport he loves with respect to the club where he started out and is always welcome to sail at.
The bit more is that Bruce and Kazuko seem to be battling on through snow in Hokkaido where Bruce has noted it is only a month from Summer. Here are some of their pics
Kazuko looks a bit cold methinks...
Not my idea really of a bike ride!
Sad to say the Hurricanes lost last night but they played well until the sin bin incident and I am sure they would have won. Lots of those young players look very promising for the future.
Not sure why I have gone blue but there you go.
