Jesus! I know fuck all about sailing, I'm sure to cock it up!
I got no one else, you'll have to cover it.
This was the conversation right before the announcer left for this coverage. Apparently he didn't know the clock was counting down to the start of the race.
I used to naviguess for a guy in races. He used to carry his insurance deductable in cash in his pocket when racing. We had some exciting starts and he had a reputation for being fearless during the starts. Once we came in to the starting line from the course side on starboard tack which gave us the right of way. Everyone had to miss us and we ducked behind the line and tacked back over just after the starting canon.
The start is much more exciting than the actual race.
