Hi Greg,

Just thought I’d send a message of thanks and congratulations on the Little Optimist book.
(I’ve met your brother Conn through work and my wife teaches at Cannons Creek, although in a grade lower than Finn.

I’ve sent a copy to my cousin’s son in Australia – even though he’s a too old. He’s currently being groomed to represent Aus in sailing at the Olympics and America’s Cup. Back in 2012 he sailed an Optimist from Pittwater to Sydney Harbour (not sure how that compares to your voyage, but it was a fair sail… and particularly so in a bathtub)

WATCH – Jim Colley – Australia

WATCH – Jim Colley – USA

(And for one more coincidence, it seems one of the classes he’s currently competing in is a Finn)

All the best. Cheers,
