The Knitting Sailor


Sailing from the sofa…

I have just discovered virtual sailing http://www.sailx.com/.  We are going to the dinghy show down in London in March and as such we have received a whole load of promotional bumf – and one of these was an invitation to take part in a virtual sailing event with ‘live’ finals at the show!

So my free time is now entirely consumed with swearing at a computer screen while being mocked by other competitors from Portugal, Australia and Surrey.  So just like a real regatta then… only you get to eat chocolate while you’re doing it.

As in real life I’m still coming in last.

Can you knit at the same time? Now that would be truly clever.

I imagine there’s less swimming involved though? Or I suppose you could keep a bucket of water by the computer to dunk bits in, to add more reality to the experience.
