Feck this! I'm going back to my knitting......OH... hang on?.... My boat doesn't go fast enough to worry about this stuff..... in fact mine is probably safer than most....it doesn't get wet.

If I recall correctly, John Walker wrote a paper advising the procedure to be followed should the worst happen during a race; who should talk to the media etc.

John's paper was circulated I believe to organisers but not generally published. Also, when I started organising races in 96 we were advised to have a quiet room set aside for family members should a serious /fatal incident occur.

It came into very sharp focus for me as an organiser when Scott Ellis had a terrible accident at Eastbourne and Harry Sired (whom I convinced to race again) crumpled under the wheel of HFS. The feeling of guilt and responsibility was enormous. Had I not put the race(s) in place neither of these events would have happened.

When I race now, I put the safety of the crew before all else. If I screw up, I can kill three people. It's the same ethos I had when we had the corporate hospitality company. I always thought when we were doing Reefer Racing corporate days that I had the world's most frivolous job with the most incredible responsibilty. When you are on your own you can do as you please. As the person in control of the boat with passengers (cause that's what the navigator and driver in our boat actually are) you have responsibilites in addition to winning. I don't mean to trivialise the roles of the other members of the crew but the throttleman really runs the show. If I don't like what they are doing I can stop, If they don't like what I am doing or if I'm being stupid, there's not much they can do about it - hence the feeling of responsibility.

Have finished my brain dump now. Almost forgot the original title of the thread. Why do/did we do it. Ain't got a clue.

Anyone have any picture of girls with big tits?

I understand Cookee does indeed have a very small tube, especially toward the end!
