    Mine is events! The best is Cowes Week! Love it!:)

    I think most of us has got some special sailing event you wait for or dream to go to and see what is that fuss all about!

    Mine was always Cowes Week, started off as dinghy sailor than worked my way to yachts I just love anyboat that can sail well and go very fast! Cowes Week this year was my fave event! I loved the sailing, people and the beer tents!

    Watching the racing meeting the crew from the quick boats sailing on Maxmus, getting some intersting ideas from team bear and my best one was meeting olympic sailor I Percay! That was like a dream come true! I will work hard till the next one comes so I can buy that plane ticket which will get there on time for the party!

    Oh yeah, the fireworks were cool!:cool:

    What's yours?

    Just one girl, maby two. Any more and they'd just be mad at me :) A nice fat tub for a boat, like a Morgan.The wind would always blow, small waves, and people that are friendly in every port. I'd just take my time!
    And a lemon meringue pie!

    I would like a boat that I had absalute confidence in . A boat that could do any thing. A boat that I could just reef in and go below knowing it was all in its stride. A boat that cost me nothing and that I could sell tomorrow for a good profit to a man that was waiting with money in hand.

    You cant buy boats like that.

    Hmm......
    How about a 40-metre luxury cat, somewhere tropical. About a hundred friends, family and colleagues; a dozen assorted watercraft out back to keep everyone happy. A galley full of good Canadian food, a well stocked bar, everyone just hanging out and having fun with no classes, jobs or car payments to worry about. Waterskiing all morning, relaxing on deck all afternoon while we cruise to the next tropical paradise, watching the sunset from a quiet cove in one of the canoes, then partying all night.....
    Oh.... And a lemon merangue pie.... lol
