A bit late!

Post by PeterV » Mon Sep 17, 2018 9:59 am

In 1979 I gave up serious Finn sailing, partly because I couldn't get enough time to sail having joined the navy, but mainly because whatever I did with my Fairey Finn (K155), I wasn't as fast as a Taylor Finn and I couldn't afford to buy one.

This weekend I had my first race in a Taylor Finn, thanks to Nessa and only 40 years later! Her boat went well, is smart and reasonably well sorted. I am struggling with tennis elbow but I managed to sail 4 races and really enjoyed the experience after all these years!
