    I noticed a slight element of sarcasm in the comment about me completing a full race (which I won). The reason I rarely complete a race, or, alternatively, don’t try very hard is because I am undisputably the greatest sailor in the Club and if I always sailed to my full potential everybody else would get dispirited and not turn up, hence why I normally pretend to be complete rubbish or retire just before I can’t resist sailing through the fleet to another famous victory. However, it is nice to remind people of my ability every now and then!

    Ha, ha. ROTFL (rolling on the floor laughing). I think I might have mentioned before. It’s not the winning that counts it’s about taking part.
