    I hope this does not involve Fishnet stockings and heels? NO good for the trampoline. I dont think either of us have the legs for this. Maybe we need to look at the Tigers and Wild cats?

He intends reclaiming it on his home turf. We have however discovered his training schedule and here it is! "This the plan for myself in the lead up to the H16 worlds in Feb.

  14. Here are the details;www.pbsc.org.au THE BULLETS REGATTA IS BACK The much loved (and by some - feared *) Bullets Regatta is back for 2013. We have sorted the insurance wrangle that caused it's postponement, and with much excitement announce that The Bullets will be held on MARCH 16 - 17, 2013. NOR will posted here soon. * Sailors used to unchanging wind conditions are sometimes unsettled at the thought of the sometimes flukey conditions on Pittwater, but these conditions are like a difficult golf course - keeps you on you toes and gives you a great sense of satisfaction when you sail well. Of course, golf is a silly game, as all sailors know :-)
