My Yacht Club, Point, has an0ther world champion to add to the one it g0t in its first 100 years, which was Bruce McCurroch who won with Paul Elvstrom in the Solings Worlds of 1974. (We have raced against him, albeit in different classes, as well as in the Nationals of our own Flying Fifteen Class against Bruce Dalling, winner of the Single-handed Transatlantic Race of 1968. We beat him.)
Now we have a 29er World Champion in Benji Daniel. Thrilling news, indeed. Lovely boats. I would enjoy trying one. Point Yacht Club is organising a bumper celebration.
Young J is growing up fast. This year saw her last appearance in a Sports Day for her present school. She came away with a cup.
We had a striking strip of rainbow on the horizon over the weekend. By the time I focussed and clicked, I got this lovely shot of where it had been. There had been whales there, too. Some have been coming and waving at people from remarkably close in lately.
