Topic : Jako & Wiggy ???

At last team shed have been spotted, not in the Merlin though but a truly awfull barge called a Sandhopper (a 3 keeled version of a Squib)this I noticed today at this classes current National Champs being held at TBYC in Southend as we were out in our Merlin Jako was spotted bringing up the tail end of the fleet (23) and issued the imortal line "dont want to peak too early" what a shame he used to be so good further comment from team Jako to be expected as the racing develops tomorrow.

Be fair, Jacko and Wiggy are not quite old enough yet to be sandhoppering, not enough experience or the killer edge, long live the zimmers, all together, "talking 'bout my generation......."

"Be fair, Jacko and Wiggy are not quite old enough yet to be sandhoppering"  Understatement of the year !  Who the hell IS old enough for a Sandhopper?

So who won? Was it team "Twilight Years" or was it the Saga sponsored "Terrys Togs". I have heard that Jacko and Wiggers have booked their place on the coach for next years trip to Blenhiem Palace and that Jacko is developing a carbon stair lift. Watch this space for further developements!!!!

I thought that the hoop in a Merlin looked as if it had been developed from an old Zimmer - now we know!!
