Races, Regattas and Disruptive Technology
x In the olden days, the major cost of attending a regatta for yacht owners and crew was the accommodation and still is. Of course for cruising yachties, traditionally the crew stays on boat, during regatta week, because after all it is replete with dishwasher, washing machine, a good cellar and an oven in which you could cook a roast. For racing boat owners or dinghy owners, life was not so easy.

World Sailing Cup - Ahead a Dead Rat in a Shoe v3 or Spring Daffodils

She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
