sketches and anticdotes about my interests and travels

I wanted to go for a short sail today but sailing requires a breeze. Instead I took a look around the boatyard and ended up at the junior club. The 420 dinghies were lined up awaiting abuse Monday from our junior sailors.
As a club dinghy 420's are great and perhaps more important, durable. While 29er's are increasingly popular with racers, they would be a nightmare to maintain in a sailing school situation.
