This Laser sailing game is just getting too hard for me.
First of all I ended up DFL in the final race of the 2008 Laser Masters Worlds. Last! Tale End Bozo! There's a message there somewhere.
Then I read of all the up-and-coming youngsters starting Olympic campaigns while still in college. How can I hope to compete with kids like Ross Bennett?
And the final humiliation. On Sunday, in the last race of Kurt Taulbee's Laser seminar, I was beaten by a 15-year-old kid in a Radial!
The message is clear. I suck at Laser sailing. I'm going to finally admit that I'm just too old for this game. I need a more comfortable boat. I'm going too sell my Laser, buy a Force 5, and go and play with the other old farts.
