Buffy: Guaranteed fifth place
I'm sure this isn't how you're really supposed to warm-up for a Sunday evening gig. But it worked for me.
A couple of observations. Next time I'm sailing in snow, I'm going to wear my shades; sure, no sun, but snowflakes really sting the eyeballs when you're beating to windward. Secondly, snow is much easier to bail than water. But if you don't keep it up, it melts. And perching on the balls of your feet in iced water gets very painful on the toes.
Oh, and in the end, we did better than fifth.
It's been a good day. 0219, and I've not yet wound down enough after the gig to go to bed. So it was obviously the right choice of warm-up.
