I was cleaning out a bookcase the other day and came across two articles by Bob Ross from 1979 and 82 in copies of Australian Sailing. It is interesting to read how some things stay the same and others have changed considerably. This was all before my time in Js so rather than try to dissect it for you, I think it is better for you to read and take away some of the valuable information contained in these articles.
So here, on the eve of the inaugural Legends regatta with many from that era including Rob Mundle, who will MC the upcoming Legends Dinner evening in Gosford this October and features in this story, is the first one. Enjoy.
