....you see these in the dinghy park after you've been out coaching.



It's not so much the possibility of hoofmarks over the Lasers, Hobies and Nacras that worried me. It wasn't even the thought of cows tangling themselves in the ex-Nathan Outteridge America's Cup team fully-foiling A Class in the middle of the pic that had me concerned. What got me was the thought of telling an Olympic medallist that his current world champ A Class (under the cover to the extreme left) had been written off in a stampede. Are cats covered against acts of cow?

Luckily being a country club we had a junior who could get them out quietly. They bumped our F18 into the cat next door, but hey, Hobies are tough like bull, smart like tractor.

We get sheep all the time. The raised reservoirs in SE England have, of course a large area of steep bank all the way round which is of little agricultural use other than for sheep. Cows, no.

I thought this was going to be a post criticising dinghy racing clubs turning in to 'country club' for the elites.  

Pleasantly surprised so to see this actually about a club, in the countryside.

Call that a stampede?  Pah. I wouldn't send that pic to the insurance co.  It's just a couple a coooos have a munch on some grass in the dishy park.

I had to enlarge it, and suddenly, there they were! Like one of those clever drawings.
