Dirk - Just for the record!
First win at the Europeans in Cowes (about the 5th race for the boat ever!) in a force 6 to 7 in 2000. Driver Dereck Basham - I navigated. No more wins that year and I took over the driving in 2001 with Graham Lawton Navigating.
Since then we've won twice in Ramsgate (going for the hat trick this weekend!), Cowes Round the Island twice!, and won the Gibralter championships last year. We came 4th in the World Champs in Cape Town last year as well.
Not sure if I've left anything out, but I hope that keeps everyone happy!
By the way we would have won more races if Mr Mercury made thier saddles out of a better quality cheese!
