    Well sort of, had one of my photgraphs used on South Today as one of the weather pics. Shame they spelt my name wrong though :doh:

    International Moth UK championships at Stokes Bay, I used to sail one of these many years ago when I was younger and more agile!

    Yes they run on foils these days, back in the late 1970's when I last sailed one foils were yet to be developed. They were always tricky things to sail having no inherent stability, but very fast for their size, and wet :D
