- Tillerwoman was born in Australia and would never forgive me if I missed an opportunity to take her to visit the land of her birth to play the didgeridoo or whatever it is that Aussies do when they are overwhelmed with patriotic emotion.
- Meet up with Masters sailing friends from all over the world and have a good old time hanging out with them.
- Totally crush aforementioned Masters sailing friends in the races.
- Spring training.
- Tick off another few days on my quest for 100 days of Laser sailing in 2008. Say six days of racing and two days of practice - maybe eight in all?
But as I read the reports of the Young Guy Real Laser Sailor Worlds which are going on now prior to the Old Farts Laser Worlds I'm beginning to wonder...
First of all they lost the committee boat.
Then the first day of racing was abandoned with some pathetic excuses about the winds were too light and then the winds were too strong and then they didn't want anyone to get struck by lightning.
I hope Terrigal isn't going to disappoint?
Anyway I'm really an optimist and I see that there is going to be some sort of Aboriginal welcome at the opening ceremony for the masters' event, so I expect Tillerwoman will get to see a didgeridoo, if nothing else.
