Short version of sailing history

Started in old p class with wooden mast, and sailing holidays on the family raven 26. Mount college school sailing. Then quickly moved to keel boat racing, got hooked on multis with a nutcase who had a farrier 30. Did a bit of lean over sailing and some skiffs. Then got ruined for ordinary sailing by hooning around at 30+ on the orma

Disco has developed a knack for cat herding. A big part of the job is to organize the crew to be in the right place at the right time. Have also learnt how to laminate carbon in very small places.
