Navigators Don't Drive...
22 July 2012 | Pacific Ocean
Apparently it's tradition to let the Navigator drive if&when you get in first place. Big day today because the Pac-Cup Daily Report shows E.T. in first place today...we are still trying to verify this onboard with much discussion about Rhumblines & Great-Circle Routes & handicap systems. First place was nothing to do with me though - it was the Drivers last night who put it together thru all the weird squally lumpy stuff. On E.T. of course we all have to stand our watch coz we only have 4 people...but I still have my training wheels on. An Antrim27 is a lot like a Laser but very different too. A27 carves differently on a wave because of the keel...also rather handy for not capsizing and I'm starting to wonder if one might be class legal on a Laser? But Antrims do go sideways if you mis-time something. I am terrified I'll break our Toy if I go sideways and spoil the ride for everyone. Good News is James & Tony are gonna offer some coaching on going fast while avoiding the other. Who knows maybe I'll get it together before we get to Hawaii? Simon :)
