Thanks for the message.
I've got all the rules from RYA but I left them in Greece last time I was there. Haven't had a chance to read them properly yet (although I went through them quickly).
I'll probably have to ask for another copy. In any even the boat will arrive here in the UK (you pay no import tax for imports from SAfrica into the UK - some short of agreement between the countries) and it will be nice to have it here for a while.
However, I will call JM @ BIBOA later on today to ask him about this matter of age.
I hope (for my son's sake) that we can find a way round that otherwise will have to ask 'er indoors
to co-pilot with me and it will be like 'don't go so fast is too bumpy here. My back is killing me' and 'are you trying to kill us both??' and 'are you mad? Don't know why I got married you' LOLOL
It will be a pity for my son to miss such an experience though.
Racing in Greece is OK and fun (sunshining, good weather, hot but windy, girls in bikinies and topless lolol
etc etc) but I do not think that is anywhere as good as it is in the UK
It does not have the same buzz!!
