    So here's a question. You're in Europe for the first time and set up for a regatta. After the first day you're DFL with little hope of improvement. Do you:

    A) Keep sailing and wallow in misery because you're not a "quitter".
    B) Call it a day and go on a German beer tasting binge.
    c) Call it a day and offer support to the cute radial sailors. (assuming you're a guy)

    For me at my age, if I saw no room for imrpovment on the race course I would seriously consider a pub crawl.

    Options B and C would sound great for a weekend warrior (like I am) or somebody who just sails as a hobby, but I really doubt that anybody who wants to someday become a top level sailor would/should choose these options. Rather than "sailing and wallow in misery because you`re not a quitter" I`d say to continue sailing demostrates somebody who is very resiliant.

    Maybe his mom found a good tour for them to take together in Kiel.

    I hope that his shoulder was not reinjured and not allow him to sail. That really would be an unfortunate end to a traveling regatta.

    I would choose a variant of A:

    Keep sailing, because boat plus water equals sailing. It's what we do. Thus staying happy. (No misery required :D )

    and a variant of C and B:

    Get in an hour before the rest of the fleet, scoop up some Radial girls and take them on a beer trail. ( but only if I were single, otherwise it's drinking beer with wife. ;) )

    No doubt as that injury could also hose up the keel boat event.

    Just got in town with my German relatives. I'll try and write my regatta report tomorrow, which will be in my usual section. Thanks.

    It's probably difficult to discuss seeing all the effort put into getting there and for whatever reason not sailing. I'm sure he'll share when he's ready.

    Internet has been spotty, I am in a village right now after all. It'll be up soon.
