Re: Heaven Can Wait 2012

Righto.. leave it to you and BenT to work something out.

It'd be great to get StAnna on board - we could introduce him to some REAL sailing on a REAL yacht!

I like that option... and cannot for the life of me work out why we didn't do it last year. There was absolutely no reason we couldn't have just anchored for the last two hours right where we were and still finished the race. I put it down to us all being too fed up with the whole debacle to even think straight.

If it even smells like it might do that again closer to the date, there's no way I'd even get on the plane.

A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
