Quoits, sometimes known as coits, the sport of kings or at the very least sailors is one of my passions. I train for it for 12 months of the year to prepare for the annual “Bond Street Cup” (this year renamed the “Balvenie Street Cup”). I’m a proud two time winner, but I’ve had a run of bad luck the last couple of years, having been linked to a blood doping scandal in 2006, and tasting bitter defeat in 2007.
This year would see yet another defeat at the hands of my many enemies, meaning I haven’t drank from the Bond Street Cup since 2005. This stings and I have vowed to return in 2009 with a new drive. I’ll be redoubling my Quoits training, and plan on coming back bigger and better than ever.
