The sad part about all of this is that Langman is a member of the organising club, and has done a number of Hobarts some very proudly in the self proclaimed slowest boat in the fleet, an 80 year old beautiful old gaffer called Maluka of Kermandie. He also has done it in fast monos e.g. Grundig. It appears that he simply enjoys sailing all sorts of boats - irrespective of age style number of hulls etc. Shame his club isnt as sensible.
Yes, but he didn't enjoy driving the motor driven canting keelers.
