One thing I like about these group writing projects, such as our current one Learning Experiences, is that I don't have to think of something new to write on my blog every day; the Tillerheads do all the work. (Oh, by the way, if you were wondering who coined the word Tillerheads to define readers of this blog... it was bonnie from frogma.)
The Tillerhead of the Day is Jos M Spijkerman who writes Racing Rules of Sailing- Look to Windward, which is, without a doubt, one of the best blogs on the planet about the racing rules. His post Helping Hands is about a "learning experience" he had in one of his first events working as an international match-racing umpire... how he almost made a huge rookie mistake... and how he learned when not to lend a helping hand.
Thanks Jos who shows that there are all sorts of unexpected ways to interpret the theme of this project. Plenty of time left for you, yes you, to participate. Full instructions at Learning Experiences.
