I smell cow, no hang on a minute, it might be BULL.

So how many races has this amazing boat actually won, afterall, that is the sole purpose of a race boat.

Now don't get me wrong, I think the boat is great, and I like Cookee, but before we take this as being the greatest rib ever, we need to know what it has achieved!!

Is that another way of saying it hasn't won anything, coz I'm sure it has. Or is it that you talk alot, but don't actually know anything!

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!

Cheers Cookee, I thought it had done a bit. Good luck for Ramsgate.

Regards

Sorry Stuart, I will try harder in future. I am a nice person really, my mum loves me. It just that it's difficult reading some of the posts on these forums, some people don't know their arse from their elbow.
