Going to do all that, although the 21 Gun salute will come from when we route the race through the ranges, try to ignore the wasp sounds and sudden staccato splashes around you..

But no seriously I'm going to try and prep them for a bit more action I'm trying for a fun fund raising year to get a permanent slipway, some changes to the Bar/Galley so staff can move from one end to the other seamlessly as against the two ends of the building they are currently at.

The Race box is definite, any links chaps, and the lights and submitting returns, not sure I've got enough political clout or desire to change what the RYA set even though we got beat by a Laser again on Sunday by 1 sec despite a massive lead..

FOM if there is any appetite for it I'd love to have you all down, might even have to carpet the beach or have launch parties, trying to get some boats down for a demo, can certainly get boards, kites, SUPs as part of a weekend demo day affair.

Getting your returns in means that the timings of your races become part of the whole, so your super-human Laser sailors will be influencing the results of all the poor schmucks everywhere else... Is that fair?!

Carpeting the beach would make your launching and recovery easier, albeit at risk of severely denting the profits of the gelcoat-repair-kit sector.

I think you should hire a documentary-making crew to follow your every action. The movie would of course change the sailing world, as well as make a mint at the box-office. Just remember that Tom Cruise stands on an out-of-shot box much of the time

We're going to have some training evenings, I trust I can put your name down for a visit one night and even a book signing if you wish..
I'm going to contact the Boat Whisperer, to give us a talk..

Tom Cruise and GRF are probably about the same height, so he could certainly play the "grumph" role in the film. I was thinking Danny DeVito for me.

Always happy to share my thoughts and try and entertain.

Audience? I should think we could drum up a couple of dozen, plus some camp followers 2hrs? It doesn't take two hours from Guildford it only takes an hour from Gatwick maybe an hour and a quarter with the roadworks, or were you thinking of sailing down..
