Who says Laser Sailers don't have fun! Little anecdote from Rod Theakers past!

Rod received a lifetime ban from international laser sailing in the late 1970s for throwing sausage rolls at a reception buffet for competitors at a Dunhill regatta.  One of the sausage rolls hit the commodores wife in the chest.
He recalls that it was a low cut top and the sausage roll when down. 
He thought it better not to offer to remove the offending item (sad)! He did appeal and this was upheld. It was in fact his brother Steve who was the culprit along with Ronnie Robinson. 
 
However he was quite chuffed at the time really cos he beat England's footballers who only got a European ban.
 
He says he is a reformed character now - slightly! Really??
