Re: Things lost in the water

We lost two whisker poles in Westlake. We had a new C14.2 and tried out racing. Running down wind and approaching the mark, my wife takes the pole of the sail and flings it over the side. We just watched it sink. We finished the races using a broom stick. We finished last. A couple of month later when racing again she throws the new pole over while trying to set it. We finished last. We gave up racing on Westlake and she stopped throwing poles overboard.
