Urban Escape – Richard Blakey

I have been sailing/racing most of my life, in a mix of dinghies (Lasers mostly) and keelboats – I enjoy 2-handed racing with Urban Escape but last season had the chance to try one of the RYC single-handed races (Haystack) which was great fun (it was a pretty nice day and a gentle introduction to the format!), and it’s quite an interesting process to go through in getting prepared and making sure everything works and is close at hand. I am looking forward to this season’s series and getting to know the rest of the skippers.
