    Olympic sailing, is it still the pinnacle?

    So only big boat sailors get a career? Don't we all start with small boats?

    Sign 'O the Times

    Probably get some cheap barely used ones from Cricket Australia... even get free sandpaper too.

    Don't look for any reason in the comments NORBowGirl... That might be a big step too far. Everyone seems to have an axe, and they all want to use the grindstone at the same time...

    Yeah, that would be the one where some poor bugger drowned not wearing his life-jacket today, or the very experienced fella who drowned here a few days before Christmas getting Crays for the annual fundraiser and sportsclub Chrissy bash, not wearing a lifejacket... Rather pull someone out of the piss who is cold, wet and embarrassed than a dead somebody. But carry on with your assumptions... At least our PM is subject to the same laws as the rest of us.

    Opt 2 Go Scamp has retired, got most of the way... Must be a disappointing feeling to get so close, hope all are ok on board.

    Line honours winner. Of course I too had completely forgotten the other 100 boats...

    Well, WOXI sailed a fantastic race and well deserved line honours. Failing to give way on port, or do anything other than that horrible tack right there - and then not taking the penalty when clearly hailed to do so means they have to cop it sweet. Any kid sailing in our club past Opti green fleet knows give way to the right and take the penalty when called for a stuff up. So there it is. A trophy on a shelf with line honours on it, a million pages of rants and twaddle and a thousand drunken bar arguments for years to come - and hopefully a rematch without the bs next year... Congratulations to Comanche, also a fantastic race and the winner of the 2017 S2H.

    Anyway, lots of boats out there still going hard, and still putting my sights on Maluka as why not. Real boat doing it displacement all the way. Respect.

    Fuck it, I'll find out in the morning if any times are taken at all for this race... And now the whole standings etc. has crashed anyway, not available until three hours after the start. I need more beer to put up with that.

    The timers are still running, so nobody has finished yet or has a protest been held or what?

    So, according to the race standings above, WO XI was 52 seconds ahead of Comanche?
