    Stolen Boat. Culatra, Portugal

    If that's that's not the most conspicuous boat to steal? I guess the Beneteaus were in short supplying in that region?

    The 2018 Golden Globe Race

    Some great reveals in this vid about Heede's rig failure that my cafe French did not pick up up-thread with French vid, an antifouling fuck up causing a barnacle breakfast for one and info on the use of warps/drogues. First the rig where I noted upthread as follows; Well it seems the Maths Teacher went for both a lighter mast section PLUS he did not sleeve it at the connection hence the lowers through-bolt tang fixing sliced down one side of the mast section like a knife through butter. He will be very pissed off thinking about that rigging decision. Not sure about Robin#2..you would expect from what he is seeing he will be selling that Rustler he is preparing for the next edition and be heading for the hills as we speak.

    Don't cut him slack on his bullshitting. Trump finally got around to nominating a science adviser in August 2018 after it'd been vacant since January 2017. I mean he "has a natural aptitude" for science, so it's understandable.

    Purpose of 2nd Amendment

    Prefatory vs Operative Clause. One is a desire or a pre-condition, the other is a requirement. Its really not that hard to understand. Unless you're deliberately trying not to. As evadent.....

    white house press secretary kanye he might not last 2 years, but he's pretty high energy

    Purpose of 2nd Amendment

    You probably have never even bothered to actually read the Federalist Papers. You know.... those documents where the FF's actually wrote their thoughts down in an attempt to explain/justify why the Amendments needed to be there. No of course you haven't.

    A Nugget of Pure Gold Emerges From The Midterms

    Agreed. To go out there, day after day, lie after lie, and try to explain the aberration that is this Administration is a Sisyphean task.

    Another interesting boat

    It's actually a Jeanneau built in the USA (whether that's good or bad, I will leave for others to say). Never sailed one myself but been around them a bit..... they are quite good looking IMHO and seem to be pretty fast & handy. A couple near us has one (unfortunately a casualty of Hurricane Florence) and they sailed it around quite a bit, so it doesn't require a crew of gorillas. FB- Doug

    France is foolish to expect "common decency" out of President Trump.

    I don't care about ups, downs or other awards. Is there any evidence that the NSF has actually forwarded nominees to the president? Incidentally, there have been years with small numbers of awards and some with none. It's not like there is no precedent.

    US could lose a war with China

    No one would win a war between Great Powers.

  19. Kristjen “Sieg Heil” Nielsen is rumored to be on Melania’s hit list. Sanders as DHS Sec? Yeah baby!

    C-Class Little Cup news

    It's so nice to hear V-foils referred to without all the usual negative prefixes. Of course, I'm not biased or anything The pluses & minuses of the old-style V-foils (which attach at both ends) are debated further in this thread: https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/foil-cavitation-at-lower-speeds-than-expected.53927/ Blunted: Do you have any comparisons of how the boat behaves with the inboard tip above or below the surface of the water?

    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    Pity and a shame. Seems to be the case for most iconic events. Start with a few blokes, a simple idea and before long it becomes a corporate cluster.

    US could lose a war with China

    This is fucking hilarious. When it comes to an actual issue, Steamer and Bad Bris are in agreement with me.

    Route du Rhum 2018

    Coville has overtaken Pilliard for third. Now just over 10 miles less DTF and way further south. Interesting to see how much further Coville has sailed in the last 24 hours.

    How long to get FD from trailer to sailing?

    President Obama also had the ability to take a joke.

    I figured you wouldn't care. You don't give much of a shit regarding the actions of the President, anyway. I just find it telling that he has yet to honor anyone in those areas. Too busy golfing and Tweeting.
