1977 European Championships
My own narrative of racing the 1977 European Championships at Medemblik, Netherlands.

I had Mike Beggs buy me a brand new Rondar hull, spars and sails from David Pitman. He housed me with his parents so that I could install all the fittings needed. Then he came down with his own boat, Slick Chick, and we doubled up for the trip to Medemblik for the Europeans and later to Kiel for the worlds.

Gail and I rode with Mike and his then wife Lila in his home modified LPG powered estate wagon with considerable rust.

What an education.
