    Dear Sailng Anarchy family, One of our fellow members “Hoppy” needs our help and it’s time we all pull together and help him out. Hoppy has a dream to help out the disadvantage whales in the world and make a difference to there live. We all think that a whale is just a whale and there isn’t a difference. How wrong we all are and we have been discriminating against them for years. We have taken away their rights. We use them as a tourist attraction, we bully them as we sail by them when racing and we hunt them for food for the Japanese and we all think that a whale is just a whale. It’s time we all work together as one and help Hoppy’s quest for the whales. Hoppy believes that Gay and Lesbians whales need Land Rights Too and it’s our job to bring justice and help Hoppy put this right in the world. In order to bring this matter to the world and help out the disadvantage whales out a plan has started to be formed by a few follow SA members and with your help we can make Hoppy’s dream come true to help the whales. So today we are launching the “Gay and Lesbian Whales Need Land Rights Too” campaign to bring to the people and to the world this very important problem. We will be starting a web site, face book and a go fund me page to support this very important cause. So here’s the plan and we need your support to help hoppy out. Today we announced that lead by Hoppy, The 75th 2019 Sydney to Hobart fund raisers to put support to “Hoppy’s” dream of land rights for gay and lesbian whales With our support we can make Hoppy’s dream of saving the whales come true for many years to come as the plan is to buy a race boat (with some accommodation and electric toilet) and race the boat all over world starting with this years hobart and show the world that the whales have rights too. As head of this movement and organisation Hoppy will do his best to spend any money raised to bring to the world this matter. He’s willing to take one for the team ( what a guy). The working committee has already started planning the tee shirt design to bring this course to the world . “ Gay and Lesbian Whales need Land Rights Too” and the back would say “ Support Hoppy’s Quest For Whales Rights”  “Hobart Challenge 2019” If you feel you would like to help support “Hoppy’s” quest please “Like” this post and send our “Hoppy” a message by posting here as well. Its time we all did our bit for the whales. Pulpit

    Particularly not now when we are still reeling over the loss of Randumb. What a senseless waste...

    What utterly stuns me is how normal this seems. I am guessing well over 50% of Republicans could not give one shit if Trump literally calls Putin for orders every morning. As long as Putin is not a Democrat, who cares There was a time not all that long ago when no one would have believed this as a movie plot and if it was real, Trump and all his psychopathic minions would be in the deepest hole anyone could find waiting their turn in the electric chair. The Rosenbergs were executed for far less.

    yup - just look at Australian Sailing's Annual Report: https://www.sailing.org.au/about/annualreports/ Expenditure matches income.. (AUD) $18M revenue. $4.5M from clubs affiliation, training fees, certification, instructor registration etc ~$13M ASC and sports grants (ie: the general taxpayer) Expenditure ~$18M $8M on employee benefits (! FMD) $1.5M rent and office $1.7M grants to athletes $200k on depreciation of coach boats (not sure how many boats that adds up to?) I'll note there doesn't seem to be any club-specific expenditure. That $4.5M effectively goes up the wazoo in admin and paperwork

    Charter the Pogo? Its got a fat arse so all the Greenies will feel empathy and connect with the program, and I even have the love scratches for David Attenborough to spin into a three part mini series. We dress up Hoppy like Rimas for the live crosses where he just has to look serious and adopt the 1000 yard stare. This might have legs you know (heheheh, pardon the pun)

    I understand that the first train failed to protest the truck in what is essentially a self-policing track crossing. Did the second train get redress?

    Putin may not have needed to step in, I bet Trump would have screwed the place up anyway

    The fact is, that the house has a budget, which they have forwarded to the senate, which Bitch McConnell will not bring up for a vote because he knows Trump will veto it, and when it comes back, the veto will be over ridden..... And Bitch won't stand for that. He doesn't want the will of the people, or their elected representatives to be heard. This is really more on McConnell than anyone else.

    Things are ramping up. The 70 metre barge carrying a very large crawler crane is now tied up at Halsey wharf, ready to start work on the Hobson wharf extension for the Luna Rosa base. Note that this crane will be used for piling and wharf-building, NOT dredging as the Sail World article states. The marina pontoons and piles adjacent to the Maritime Museum, in the outer viaduct basin, are in the process of being removed by Total Marine Services with their much smaller barge and crane. All of the yachts and launches previously moored there were all gone by late last year. A large area has been barricaded-off on Te Wero island for a construction depot, and access to the outer end of Hobson wharf is now closed to the public. The steam tug “William Daldy” has moved a short distance from the end of Hobson wharf across to Princes wharf, where I think she’s more visible to the public than where she was and I hope it generates more awareness of this beautiful old tug (one of her claims-to-fame is a photo of her towing the barque “Pamir” into Auckland soon after the second world war. Pamir is famous for being the very last large sailing ship to carry a commercial cargo around Cape Horn, and my great uncle was the captain during her third voyage carrying war material from NZ to San Francisco and back during 1943 - 1944). The old 1920 steam-driven floating crane “Rapaki” that was moored at the outer end of the Maritime Museum is now in the process of being cut up at Titan Marine’s slipway adjacent to Silo Park. I spoke to some of the Titan engineers last week and they told me she was “totally fucked, mate!” Full of rust and asbestos, but a lot of the bits, including steam engines, are going to the Maritime Museum, MOTAT and the Auckland Steam Society. For months now sandblasting and water blasting has been carried out on Wynyard wharf where the remaining bases will be built. Although the tanks have gone from the tank farm, work continues on this portion of the wharf with a lot still to do. Eventually the AC boats will be lifted out there and then transported across the road (Brigham St) to the bases on the old tank farm land. And finally, this morning the world’s biggest (15,000 tonnes with a carrying capacity of 5,000 tonnes) semi-submersible yacht transport ship “Yacht Express” was in the process of unloading the last of her cargo of superyachts and launches after a trip from Ft Lauderdale (I think). The last to leave was a superyacht (a ketch) that appeared to have “Justine” written on her boom, but don’t quote me on this.
