This week had another of those business meetings that seem to be doing a lot of recently. Afterwards went for lunch and the conversation just happened to turn to sailing (again).
Turned out my client had a rather good six degrees of sailing story. He had once worked for the New Zealand office of a multi-national company during the time that it was one of the sponsors of the American's Cup, and had made very good use of that opportunity, having sailed as the 17th man along with the likes of Russell Coutts and Brad Butterworth.
Now that must have been fun!
Might be worth mentionin here - in a suitably, quiet, modest and British way - my best claim to 6 degrees fame, namely how sailed once with Emma Richards.
