_____________________ THE DON BUYS A BOAT ________________________

My good mate Don and I have been racing an International Flying Fifteen class yacht together. We called this boat 'Borrowed' because ....... it has been a borrowed boat. We have done some work on the boat in lieu of sailing it - something of a win-win situation.

About a week ago we went and looked for the second time at a much newer and better sorted Flying Fifteen which Don has now purchased. We will be sailing her for the first time this coming Sunday. She is called 'Explosive'. I have been referring to the boat as 'Gelignite' and Don has been calling her 'Hand Grenade'. Whatever appellation she ends up with we are both determined to sail her well so that her performance doesn't end up being that of an old bomb.
