Gets to something when the place you think you've been in for only five minutes has seen kids become full blown mamils, then I turn around and work out it's been fifteen years.. fifteen years can you bloody believe that, I've been a bloody dinghy sailor for fifteen years and on this forum for a fair few of them.

Then I have to consider that outside of my own club and folk I already knew from prehistoric dingy times the only people I've really met and become as friendly as one can in this digital age I've met from here, so it has been a valuable source and even though they've now entered pre senile SUP & ATB decrepitude you can still hold out hope for them that one day they may return to the fold when like me they can no longer do anything worthwhile without incurring annoying injuries.

Ha! That ship has metaphorically sailed - 6 months to recover a mild/moderate shoulder injury from snowboarding earlier this year - it still clicks and aches after too much paddling.

I doubt my Laser was the last boat I'll own, but despite some initial intentions, dragging a D-Zero or an Aero out to Valencia when the only racing is in Lasers seems too much like that famous Einstein quote.... so for now, I'll enjoy the precious time I have left when my daughters actually want to spend time with me, rather than feel its some god-awful obligation!

Bye for now, see you on Whatsapp etc if not before another 'pop-in' here at some point.... I didn't delete this favourite, who knows maybe there's a new boat just around the corner I won't be able to say 'no' to ;-)

Yes  Smile 
A Laser is a Laser is a Laser whose sum is equal to a D-Zero and Aero cubed 
LLL=D-Z/Aero

Just checked. 11 August 2004. Over 8000 pieces of nonsense spouted. Need a life, but think that boat has sailed.

As for the injuries, mine from 15 years ago appear to be coming back to haunt me.

4 broken ribs a few years ago still ache, broken leg 20 years ago still aches, broken hand and arm, (done at same time) 30 years ago still ache, a University announced some years ago that fractures do not ache in cold damp weather  Wacko they didn't ask me.
