Illustration Friday - SPORT
I'm a butterfingers and I was always one of the last people to be picked for the team, so sport hasn't often been something I've enjoyed. However this depicts a moment of pure pleasure. Rounding the Needles in the 1987 Round the Island race. We had been cold and beating our way up to the Needles. There were hundreds of boats battling for space. As we rounded the Needles the spinnaker flew up, the warmth of the sun flooded our bodies as our boat changed direction. Up ahead were the multihulls, one of them being sailed by Robin who I'd met for the first time the evening before. Three months later we were married!
