As a supporter, I must say I *love* the Foreign Sailings. It's just not the same over here, people scarper after the race, don't arrive until the day before, not in the same place....the whole "being together" thing is what it's all about for me. Yes, you might not get on with everyone but Barley's right about people missing out. Lanza this year was a small group but it was such a great trip, you really get to know people well. The first IM we "did" was IMCH '09 and it built a base for many friendships. I know it's expensive to go abroad but we do know that every year we will be doing a trip, so we save for that (and yes, I know we are lucky we can affod to save too). I was really happy that Raf, Pingu & Slag came to Lanza, embracing the Sailing Spirit, as I've not been abroad with them before.

So, I guess what I'm saying is, "more Euro disco beat trips" please

Personally I think that it's not beyond the wit of us to be able to log on to a computer the evening after Nice (as per your previous commment, Barley.)

Some of us problems doing anything (except getting to the bar....again) at 11pm the day after the race last time  But I have delegated responsibility for this already.

For what it's worth I think the PSOF Championship should be a branded IM event. 

So Copenhagen gets my vote.

Copenhagen 2016?

Rafi - good point, well put. We can delegate responsibilty to a grown up.

I'd love to do an IM abroad, looking at various prices it can be done fairly cheaply from what I see. I'm not sure about transporting bike costs?

**Looks around for a grown-up**

Tricky one this....

Chris - what do you mean? It costs about £30-£50 each way to put a bike on a plane.

That's not so bad then Mouse, I heard it was expensive, didn't look into myself.

I guess you would only need a hotel for 3 days or so unless you wanted to make a proper holiday of it, race money, beer money and food - oh and nipple cream lol

Chris we tend to do Thursday to Tuesday, the debrief is almost more important than the race itself
