Larby I have raced since the late 70's when the RYA didn,t have a strangle hold over local racing.

You are welcome to come and see all my race trophies at home anytime, maybe a few more years of you racing might come close to getting the same amount!

Some of us have not only worn the T-Shirt out we invented it .

Its a shame you dont remember the great races we had in the 80's but when we were having the prize giving with a few large black labels in the Yacht club you were probably having a rusk and a nappy change
