Too Heavy??

Postby Mike Simpson on Mon Nov 28, 2005 4:43 pm

I am 92 kg and 1750 mm tall.

I am pleased to find I am more competitive than I anticipated.

My main handicap is my physical condition! (Knees gone from 30 odd years of OK sailing and general effects of aging showing in other areas, such as maintaining the rage!)

I initially found the boat uncomfortable in light breezes, but am now accommodating myself to screwing myself up in a lump in the centre of the boat.

The boat is a hoot in a breeze and worth it for that!

There are many days when the good littlies will beat the good biggies, but that is the cross we have to bear in maintaining our superb figures!
