The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
In looking back over the past year I definitely had some of each. The Good was in May seeing Try-Foil rise for the first time. The boat and foils that I made actually worked. I had spent only about $6000 and produced a working foiler. The Bad had to be in July with the overall Weymouth experience. Even though I met lots of good folks the combination of the weather, the cost, the weather, my lack of preparation, and the weather all conspired to yield a Bad experience. And the Ugly had to be the last sail of the season in October at West River when I trashed the main foil.
So as I look forward to this year I'm sure there'll be some good, bad and ugly moments to come. Let's hope there's more of the first!
Weigh-in on the weight poll if you desire. Remember, this is not your sailing weight (which might be 5 kgs heavier) but your buck nekkid on-the-scales weight.
Enjoy some classic Clint, 42 years before "Gran Torino."
