Recently I have been gaining experience in different classes, sailing with new people with different skill sets. It has been so much fun and a great learning curve. Thanks to WAIS and Ron Tough for holding the Pacer Challenge, as well as FSC for the Fremantle Harbour Classic. Both were really fun events. I also went to the Etchells Worlds with a RFBYC member Martin Webster. Although our results weren't great, the experience was very valuable. I learnt a great deal about team dynamics and gained fantastic racing experience in a 100 boat fleet amongst many legends of the sport.
