    congratulations on the regatta results, in terms of performance per money spent, you must be in first place! Good job, your sailing skills must have improved greatly as well as your design skills. that is really some impressive results, and a rather impressive little sailboat too!

    Sailboats can be a nice way to impress the pretty ladies, but be careful: only take them out when conditions are ideal, and take it easy. If you scare them on their first ride, or worse, go for a swim because of a sailing error, they will never get in another sailboat again, nor want anything to do with you. Many young male sailing enthusiasts have found this out the hard way.
