Is it true?

I so hope so....

I've just heard a story, that at the last kiddies race, Ms Pascoe was so far in front of the rest of the fleet, that when she lost forward gear, she finished the race in reserve, 1st place.

I so want to hear that it true.

It's true!!!!! Then some mean minded person, aka white bird, wanted to have her d'qd for missing a mark. She did miss a mark of the course, but the rules allowed her to do this with a time penalty and she still WON. Well done Millie.
Your Dad really knows how to rig a boat no matter what class it's racing in.

I'm not sure she did miss a mark..............

Coz if you were in reverse and the instructions said port side that would let you pass inside the mark and still take it on the port side - If ya kow what I mean... mmmh Dizzy I'd have argued that

Well Done
