Hm. Well, I sat for minutes on end and racked my brain cell for a funny
response. Nothing. So, in line with the current
trend, I sat for minutes on end and racked my brain cell for a rude response. Nope, still nothing.
You posted the request for crew on the same very day that we went to attach our forestay to our shiny new, double reinforced chainplate. After a few hours of hot slogging in humidity, I asked my Marc if he'd mind if I sailed across the Atlantic with that funny
bloke from CF (He knew exactly who I meant for some reason). He said "Why not". A very different response from the one I got when I asked if I could sail down the the Canaries
with the stranger who joined CF just to find crew for his 26' trimaran
So anyway, I reeled off at least two reasons why not (fairly good ones, unfortunately), and hence I didn't apply for the post.
Anyway - the point is, he trusts you enough to approve of my joining you (which is irrelevant, since I can't) - having only ever read your posts on CF. You're clearly a decent bloke, and I'm sure it'll all pan out right for you in the end, just like everything always does. Eventually.
Good luck with the cruises, and hope the selection process works out - I'm sure you'll have thousands of fit young students to choose from. Hm. Maybe not - college starts soon.... Well, good luck anyway.
