Harry has definitely been an inspiration to all us more obscure “old guys”. I’ve never thought much about duck jibing but I really want to add it to the “bag-o-tricks”,......as modest as they might be

Thanks Dave,
I'll try to curb my eagerness to get wet next time and try some wing rotations while walking or jogging down wind first :D
