Message for a friend

Hi all, a friend of mine, Les Wootten, was talking about his days as a ski racer. I mentioned Boatmad and as he doesnt use a pc, I offered to post a message asking if anyone on here remembered him.

Thanks

Pete

Les Wooton

I remember Les: I used to ski race with him behind Albert Boozer's Shakespeare "Rebel" and his Picton "She's a Rebel too", All this at the Kent Boat and Ski Club on the River Medway.

This was "proper" ski racing on a pair of skis with hands in front: none of yer nancy-boy wrapping allowed then.....

Ask Les if he remembers Peter and Bud Driscoll. Sadly Albert no longer with us.
