Re: Interesting...

On another note (having done a very small amount of research), it seems there is certainly some indication in showing it can quite probably be true: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/kent/4692363.stm http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/Forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=3786&PN=3&title=celebrity-sailors Intere...

Interesting...

I wonder how valid a claim like this can be thought of:

Re: National Rally 2016 - Hunts SC

If anyone may be looking for crew for this event (on a very much provisional basis), I'd be very keen to be crew for someone....!
