Get to know Ed…

* My favourite memory of SB20 sailing is…… Planning along nicely in 20 – 22 knots of breeze at Morgat in May 2010 when a gust of 25 + knots hits – the boat leaps off a wave and says, “give me some more of that stuff” and the terrace after-race at the Royal Torbay Yacht Club during the May 2011 Worlds

* My dream SB20 crew would be…one that makes the skipper look good, is always available for regattas, enjoy getting the boat prepared before the regatta and, depending on my weight, they weigh in at 269,9 kg.  If that’s not possible, Bertrand Pacé and Mathieu Richard would be nice for the Worlds in Hamilton Island
* My most embarassing moment in the SB20 was when I…the boom stuck in the backstay during a jibe in heavy breeze and during a match race in SB20, sailed the boat over the committee boat anchor line when entering the match (the current was terrible..).
* The best SB20 sailing location has to be…Hamilton Island, Australia
* The event that I never miss in the SB20 calendar is… the Worlds and the European Championships
