Rules for Finn Sailors

Post by alan williams » Tue Mar 09, 2010 11:46 am

Hi Just found this on Sailing Anarchy - Dinghy Anarchy

THE RULES OF FINN SAILORS not posted it on this forum as it's rather rude.

Ahhh. the Finn finger.

In my defence I'd like to point out that under that bandage was a broken finger with the nail torn off (filled my glove nicely with blood). The moral of the story being, don't put your hand near a centreboard with a 10mm elastic return.

OUCH! Looks very nasty - if you need a good hand surgeon I can introduce you to the very best, she's now giving 50% of her time to the forces, magical hands painless surgery and stitching. Wish you better!
