Fig.1. Laser sailing and Windguru
I’ve taken to looking at Windguru the way my father would listen to the Shipping Forecast; even if I don’t make it onto the water the thought of what I’d be doing or how I’d cope has me frothing at the mouth.
Another challenge to master. Confidence and familiarity on water. Never again be so long off the water that I get seasick. Develop new skills: setting a race, motoring and refuelling around a busy harbour, sailing bits and bobs, waves and tides … other yachts and dinghies fighting to make it first to the next buoy.
