    So chalking up 90% of the national death toll and closing down state and international borders to then fuck countless businesses and people's lives Australia wide and overseas.... you call "dodging a bullet" and think you deserve a little "self congratulation". You are fucked in the head.

    How good is being stranded overseas now at Christmas without your loved ones and they seperated from you? ScoMo has just posted this tweet especially to make you all feel better. I think he just set the 'fucking unbelievable cunt' record.

    Brexit WTF, WTF

    Final reading and vote in HOC is Wednesday and EU meet Thursday. Thursday 1600 UTC (and EU announce so enough time for evening news and Fridays papers.)

    Seriously? How many people died in that particular SH? I'll admit it's really hard to be a LE fan and I'm not one, but dude.... I think that experience would seal it for me on LD offshore racing too. The big boats like his Sayonara that got into and across Bass Strait early and so relatively speaking got through unscathed. I don't recall her even incurring any sail damage....maybe his dress got torn? It was those behind him who got smashed.

    She is great. Big balls them pre purchasing BankPop B4 2016 start then limited budget so minimal expenditure incl same foils and some sails going around a second time. The problems of them being out of the action at St Marlo etc. If he can hang onto the next LP he (and Charlie) might get a big jump on the fleet starting towards the end of next week. Really hope this skinny money team does well.

    Wishful thinking I fear, Jack. Reluctant though I am to reference WW2 rhetoric, this looks more like the end of the beginning to me. Dark days ahead. Cheers, W. Leo and I raise you.

    This weekend Johnson has a big decision which doesn't seem to have been given much airplay. Detail here. Next week the UK gov introduce the Finance Bill with yet more powers to break international law, on top of those in the UKIM Bill. This a money bill that gives HOL no means to stop. The EU are not going to prosecute any agreement with someone seeking to break it. Barnier has told EU ambassadors this on Wednesday. 1. If Johnson allows Finance Bill to continue unamended EU negotiations are OVER. OR 2. If he amends Finance Bill to keep EU negotiations alive, then huge loss of face. Backbench in revolt and countdown to his leadership being OVER starts. He is screwed. This farce may only have days left and it's all over.

    Pretty sure Maitre Coq's Yannick Bestaven's company Watt & Sea supplies everyone. There was talk of 2 retractable in-hull turbines early but I don't think anyone persevered with it due to foiling. The only other is electric auxiliary engines with hydro combo. Only Alex or did he finally go diesel??

    This FIRST hydro issue reported only speed related, not UFO or fish? If so that is an improvement over the past.

    She looked slim to my eye. There are 12 systems in principle. 3 system types now dominate the market: 1. Auxiliary rudder systems (types 3, 4, 5 and 6) 2. Servo-pendulum systems (types 9, 10 and 11) ie. Aries and your Monitor. 3. Double rudder systems a combo (type 12) which is the Windpilot. The cruisers debate their choices to death. That seems to favour 2 over 3 and 1 forget. I can hear thread drift police warming their engines.

    They are not alone. QLD premier Field Marshall Janette Young will slam the gate shut if someone sneezes. Now think about that and this. "controlled by the Federal government" Yep these cunts are fucking hilarious. Yes David Littleproud MP · Member for Maranoa, Queensland. That moron would be equally at home sitting around Palaszczuk's cabinet table who when not closing borders fucked up the Fraser bushfire response, a “dismal failure” that has seen it burnt to a fucking crisp. All cunts.

    Well I respectfully disagree. I firmly believe that controlled quarantine is the way to go and that needs to be controlled by the Federal government. ... ...And yes I am selfish and I am most certainly a cunt, but I will not tolerate being called ignorant! "I firmly believe that controlled quarantine is the way to go and that needs to be controlled by the Federal government." LB you can firmly BELIEVE yourself for as long as you like. Last time I looked you aren't the cunt running the country and failing on this bit. Last time I looked ScoMo is not a health expert. I would rather BELIEVE Jane Halton, the Sec Comm Depart of Health, ex WHO, member US National Academy of Medicine and winner of the Geneva Health Medal; whose Report to ScoMo recommends "controlled quarantine" and "controlled by the Federal government." "I will not tolerate being called ignorant!" Ignorance is replying without reading. Ignorance is not knowing when to fold when given the opportunity to do so gracefully. LB now you 'look' like a dumb ignorant cunt. I don't like that 'look'. It disturbs me.

    Seb Josse (Gitana) retired due to foil failure in 2016. My bad it is 3 out of 25. Forgot completely about EdR's being a soft foil failure. Sebs long tour to Australia stuck in brain more closely.

    So we move to the best of the stone age. The traditional Pendulum Servo System being 1960's English ARIES which inspired design of those Californian MONITORs you made. I was only a short time user of a vane being an early adoptee of an electric AP. Often toyed, but not very long with thought of vane as a unpowered spare, but the space required is a killer.

    "I for one genuinely hope he chooses to come back and race again." God has given the world only ONE WISH on who they want back in 2024. AT. OR Trump. Rest easy.

    Yep hope it softens the blow. Of all out there with potential for retirement, she really belongs down the bottom of that list. Her family program an additional challenge overlaying actual participation in their sport for them both.

    Quarantine Hotels are a high risk source and will ALWAYS be. a high risk source like ANY form of quarantine. Victoria's BIGGEST FAIL wasn't the hotel security guard issue. Noting that was compounded by putting infected meatworks employees into the same fucking hotel. The Victorian Govt BIGGEST FAIL was NOT having a contact/trace system with sufficient capacity' that could CONTROL any outbreak beyond a fart out of a bottle. NSW has a robust contact/trace system and it is working. That is why NSW Minister Brad Hazzard said " there were no concerns about hotel quarantine causing cases to creep into the community"

    ". it isn't as much that he doesn't give a fuck about you,..There are limitations to how many people can be safely quarantined at a time and it is what it is." Horseshit "it is what it fucking is" LB. Pull your fucking head out of your arse. Feds own 'National Hotel Quarantine Review" dated 17 October, (National Cabinet Incl states was briefed on 23 October.) says the current quarantine shit is unsustainable and should be changed ASAP. So a populist political decision still happening into month two by Morrison ALONE that fools get sucked in by. Science goes out the fucking window and your fellow Australians are fucked over. So LB what is it? Sorry I didn't know? OR I'm still a ignorant selfish cunt?
