Helly Hansen Cup

I'm tired but I am, as you can see, available for sailing equipment catalogue shots in the dinghy park. 

I have spent the last two of days taking part in a sailing regatta in Rungsted. There were a number of firsts over the weekend. First regatta away from my home club so the boat had to be dismantled, transported and re-assembled before I could sail. My first time sailing with a reasonable amount of wind and my first 2 day regatta.

Saturday was the most interesting day. I had to assemble the boat that someone kindly transported to the club for me on his double trailer. There was plenty of wind and I did fairly well considering my abilities and lack of experience. The starts went well and I enjoyed it a lot despite getting battered and bruised a bit and maybe breaking my little toe.

Sunday was a bit of an anticlimax as the wind let us down during the second race by shifting and too much to run proper races so racing was abandoned after just two races.

I wasn't last, but I was last out of the people who took part in all of the races. My best was 14th place in one race but I was also last in a couple. There is work to be done...

I'm NED724
Not in last place
Still not in last place
Probably in last place

    You definitely look like a male model - thanks to the guy on the right - if you want to look thinner/younger/sexier/more hirsute.......
    A good choice of companion.
    Looks like Sh reservoir!
    Glad it went well

    Turning into a vi-king

    Whether I look increasingly Danish or not is a tough call but the sailing gear seems to come in monochrome shades. I do have a blue short sleeved top, but it was too cold for that at the weekend. I am still trying to maintain a degree of English idiosyncrasy, but I don't think I managed it there!
