OK, I thought no wind was bad...

...but hitting a bell bouy is significantly worse!

No pictures tonight, because I forgot my camera.

Which is a good thing. Imagine me looking really pissed off at myself, then multiply that by 50, and you'll get an idea how mad I am at myself tonight.

Almost no wind. We crept towards the bell bouy. A lunar tide was flooding, but stupidly I discounted that minor fact.

Fast forward to two minutes later...some gelcoat torn from my topsides and a good schmear of red paint (from the bouy) along the deck/topsides edge. Shit!

At least nobody got killed.

And I really hate it when that's the BEST thing I can say after a race.
