|Typhoon with mascot Tigger|
Every year in October I stop work, down tools and travel to Norfolk for the annual Barton sailing Regatta. It is a unique sailing holiday where a few brave hire companies hire their yachts to a group of mad would be olympic sailers! I have been going since 1992 and just love both the racing and the singing in the bars afterwards.
The picture on the left shows our main racing tool TIGGER who frightens the opposition and keeps the wind in our sails!

This year we hired Typhoon which is a change for me as I usually go for gaff rigged boats but I fancied a change(and a bit more comfort) and so went for this boat with full standing headroom (in 6ft 4in!)
