Oh deary me, I've just found a complete kicker system that I forgot to put into the Tazzie container with the boat. I would guess this is an important piece...... Have you forgotten and important items???

I wonder...... :roll:

So you want some do you???

Two Leaky masts went in actually, so there......

Discovered jib sheets now.....along with kite sheets, mainsheet, string and blocks for Cunningham and Kicker.....I don't think they're supposed to be here.....

Better not tell Geri, eh? Ssh!.....

I don't see many of you lot truthing-up about this subject. Why should I take all the heat?

Anyway, what do you think Mr Emmett forgot about nine months ago?!?

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Emmett.

Leaky,

The list of boats parts still in the UKis impressive!

Once you've packed the boat bits, I'm guessing you'll have so little spare space in your bag if you try and avoid excess baggage charges that you not have room to forget anything!

Have you found the rudder and board yet? Did the racks make it?

In the current climate, I will be leaving my Rugby ball and Cricket bat at home!

So what to remember to take to Tazzie that we do have a chance with?????

I Know..... A Nick Craig & Toby blow-up dolly! Should win anything with them sitting beside you.

Don't leave one at home?

I'm refreshing this tread to report on a very special moment that the Leaksters were a witness to during the recent Carnackers regatta. It is in keeping with the title of what not to forget when one goes to a competition, even if it is a bit surprising....

Imagine this. The sun is out, there's a gentle, warm breeze. It's low tide in Carnac bay and thirty five B14s are about to launch into the subtle swell now pushing into the Harbour.

With a gently shelving, sandy beach, Barry and Alistaire forge into the wavelets, both manfully dragging their launching trailer with gusto and testosterone. They were "up" for the maelstrom of competition. They were ready, oh boy, they were ready.

No doubt deep in tactical conversation, they had completely forgotten their boat! Yup, the fully rigged B14 had escaped and was happily sailing off across the bay! Nice one....

Oops moment?

Are you trying to say you've never completely forgotten your boat when sailing? After all, I recall Gerry and yourself turning up to King George without even a trailer!

Hang on a minute, this isn't bash-a-leaky time! It's a thread for people to confess and be cleansed. Your moment of amnesia was memorable indeed!

(Some might say that recently I have indeed forgotten where the foredeck is and slipped off to remind myself what the B14 hull looks like underwater. Either way, it's not the whole boat, matey!)

And I've just remembered the French guy who forgot to keep a hold on the catamaran wheels while at the top of the ramp. Letting go and waving his arms about a bit wasn't really going to stop the itinerant bogey romping down the decline to put a nice hole in the side of Lucy's boat.

What else? Jenny Godwit forgetting his lucky Speedo shorts???

Barnsie, a helmet?....(and/or a waterproof French to English dictionary???)

Rocket, a much younger crew?!?

The McGrath Bruvvers, heavy duty skin moisuriser???

The Cornish Boys.....a bigger packet of fags???

Cathy......5litres of epoxy. Super fast for those extreme bondage sessions.

Piers.... Your book of light wind settings.....oops...I wish I hadn't written that.....

Tony Sailspurt......an even bigger grin???

Tobes....a box of matches for his Blaze?

Rod & Shaz.....The four-strong teenage shorecrew? Who was pulling who's finger? Who then hit who, and where???

Shaz..... Don't forget your diplomacy, even at 3am.....

Pistol..... Zinc Plasters, waterproof....any colour.

Tom G......a letter addressed to me asking if he can take Charlotte out?


Long live the forum. :wink:
