Re: Why do you race
I race because...
...it's more fun than cruising(*) on Port Phillip.
* = Around here "Cruising" usually means rushing headlong for hours along a shallow lee-shore from one sheltered breakwater to another whilst watching the next storm heading straight for you and knowing you have no place to go. "Racing" means enduring only an hour or two of the same crappy weather before heading back to the bar and a warm shower.
