i'd forgotten about the recovery demo i had on a PB course, i'll never forget watching that lovely new gel coat floating away after he scratched it on the trailer, i wuz not impressed on the other hand safe water training did very good demos of safe launching and recovery and i wuz very impressed with them

If anyone wants to see chaos, take a trip to Wpnsa Portland. It's sail for gold and the coaches are out in force. Sailing might be there thing but rule of the road are not and rib driving/launch& recover certainly is not 
