2 It was windy when I arrived in Larges. Not much sun but perfect for sailing, I thought. As I fought the gale to shut my car door. I noticed there were lots of people around but no sailing boats in the choppy grey water. It was race day, so what was going on? 1 The boats, or Oppies as they are affectionately called, were lying bottom-up on the beach, their sails tightly wrapped beside them. There s been a delay, the race organizer said, pointing at two flags waving in the breeze. He said the red-andwhile-striped one meant that there was a delay, while the red, while and blue one meant it would be for three hours. 2 No-one looks disappointed, probably because they are accustomed to being ruled by the weather. Competitors - casually dressed in baggy shorts, T-shirts, deck shoes and an assortment of anoraks and baseball caps played on bikes or skateboards or just chatted to kill the time. Spectators sat in groups in the clubhouse, eating rolls and drinking tea. 3 I suddenly felt very pale and indoorsy as I sat down with some of the tanned, blond champs. Nicky Barnes, 15, Elliot Willis, 14, Eddie Huntley, 13, and Paul Campbell-Jones, 14, have been sailing for years, and certainly have the sea in their blood. Paul s dad sailed in the Olympics and Nicky started sailing because her dad dragged her along. I was terrified at first, she confesses. Recently they successfully competed at the world championships. Rock the Boat 4 Varying degrees of hard work go into their preparation, but Nicky does the most. She trains in winter and says it is hard especially when all your friends are out parting. Then she practices techniques, boat handling and wind strategy. Meanwhile, Elliot had learned how the shape of clouds and hills affects the wind. Eddie is more relaxed and a bit more confident about it: I don t like training. I ve got better things to do. 5 They all get on well, joking and teasing each other, but out on the water, competition is fierce. Paul doesn t hesitate to say the best thing about sailing is winning. They ve all had nasty moments, but no-one will admit to falling in. The boys happily told me of Nicky s fear of fish, and Elliot tells a good tale about his boat being hit by a shark. 6 Other sports, they stressed, tend to take second place: Elliot could play cricket for his area but doesn t, and Nicky plays hockey, but I m not allowed to do it before big events. The comments of their non-sailing friends about their boatie lifestyles ranged from a bit weird to really cool. Elliot thinks that only people who are jealous want to make fun of them. 7 With the three-hour delay nearly up, the excitement was building. People struggled into their wetsuits and started preparing their boats. The wind was still strong and the black clouds racing, but they couldn t wait to get out. It might just have been the weather, but I had to agree that the Oppie sailing scene was really cool.
