An investment implies I got something for my money.
No. It doesn't. An investment is putting money into an asset(foil) with the expectation of a return on investment (delivery) and hopefully appreciation (2 for1). Just "investing" doesn't mean you get anything for your money. Except maybe a confirmation email. Kind of like some late 90's era tech stock certificate. Generally all prudent investments are based on research. Just about any research in Mr C would have shown that he might not provide a good return on investment. So, to comfort or convince yourself you thought. " If one breaks, like of all of those online, I'll have another." Or "I'll sell the second and pay for my foil."
Bottom line is that you made an investment in a product that didn't yet exist. For that risk you were promised a second foil as a thank you for having skin in the game. Hopefully you didn't hedge this investment with startup of a new course racing board company. Otherwise I think you'll survive.
Besides.. Aren't you only in like 850 quid? How about the Americans screwed for $1500 of their currency. You don't see them here pouting like a seven year old.
