Back of a transit van...

[Back of a
transit van...]

As you can see, this is us in the back of a Ford Transit Van, with the bag of rubbish suspended from the ceiling of the van with bungee cords. We were really bored after the (crap) official reception at the Valenciennes International Regatta (where we were racing the next day), so we hung the rubbish bag up. After some severe tests (ie driving round roundabouts at full speed, trying to find the resonant frequency, etc), the rubbish did actually stay in the bag, so the whole thing was a success.

The amazing thing was that we hadn't had anything to drink beforehand...

We then did the same thing with the toolbox.
