Well what can I say!! Stuart started crewing for me when he was only 12 years old in "Fat Boy Slim" (stu's idea for the name by the way!!)Even at that age it was clear he was a talented sailor and even got me to the front of the merlin fleet for the years he crewed for me (I soon slipped down the fleet when he sacked me).I am so pleased and proud for stu and hollingworth lake sailing club who he has always made reference to and sailed under in all the events he has entered and won!
Well done stu !!! Back of the net!
Nick (aka Boris) was, as always, a true gentleman and lent me young "Bithell" many years ago to win the Shoreham Silver Tiller. I am very pleased for you Stuart even though you need to improve your pool playing skills!!
You've come a long way since Tasmania 2003..........very proud to have any link with you however tenuous!!
Well done Stu you deserve it.
Hello guys, thanks for all the comments, I have read them all. I am so happy to see people are genuinely pleased for myself and Luke. The merlin fleet has definately played a huge part in developing my sailing skills and thanks to Boris, life skills too. Don't get me wrong though, the merlin nationals is still the outcome regatta of the year........
well done stu, super lad with a super talent,one of the nicest young men in sailing,good luck,we're all rootin for you!!liese jack &phil
Absolutely brilliant Stu. Very very impressed. Would you believe it, I've even got tickets to watch the 470 Medal Race - you will have already won it by then though!
Life skills from Boris, now there's a thought!
