    Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    Your post indicates the grand old case different strokes for different folks. I need no human interaction - which is why I like the NBJS and HOW TO SAIL OCEANS vids. Its just them and the elements. Likewise, I have not much interest in Dylans videos where he is sailing with someone else. However I agree with you in not wanting to see couples in tears of rapture for the very same reasons as you - its vomit material. But I'd sooner be water-boarded than to ever want to be a part of the likes of what DELOS are doing. That whole "Friends" (the TV show) on a boat stuff makes me want to vomit as much as those annoying cruising couples you mention - different strokes again. I guess we should be happy that we live in a free enough society that we can make choices of what we want to watch, what we want to do ....mostly.

    I do not think the Norwegian could care less that he doesn't have the viewers of the tit and ass sailing vloggers following his videos. Personally, I couldn't give a toss what La Vag or Delos are doing, but I will always watch a new NBJS video. But, I realise I am in the minority, and that there are a multitude of mentally ill people that not only watch the T&A crap, but actually contribute their hard earned dollars to the perpetrators of it. No wonder the Kardashians are famous for doing sweet F all, and no wonder Commander Bone Spurs became President.

    Fair point, though there have only been two GGRs. Will the Mad Don learn from this race and allow some of the iconic early fin keel race boats from S&S , Contessa 32, etc etc, or we we stuck with full keel Rustlers?

    I calculate current DNF in GGR at 70%. Granted, the race is not yet finished, but currently 7.5% and 10% more DNF than the '96-'97 and '08-'09 Vendee Globe. I would not classify that as "much higher" at this point in time, but I accept before it's all over your ascertation may then be correct.

    Quite high percentages of DNF in 2008-09 and 2012-13 Vendee Globe too. Strange - I thought these modern boats were so, so, so much better than the old shit boxes that the percentages of DNF would not be so high.

    11 out of 28 boats did not finish the last Vendee Globe. How does that rate percentage wise to the two Round the World races going on in old boats at the moment? I got to say, as far as the Vendee Globe goes, with the trashing of these old boats (and a lot of it justified) in this forum by various posters, I am surprised at the amount of DNF in the Vendee Globe.

    The sterns on the modern racers are the size of a tennis court. Contessa 32 and the like should have been allowed in this race. And no GPS is just daft.

    The 2018 Golden Globe Race

    Here's a couple questions: 1. If you are being weather routed round the world by a shore team, a you truly single-handed? 2. how would the modern lightly built tennis racers have fared in some of these knock downs and pitch poles? I see Goodall's boat, despite losing her rig, the hull, deck, and keel all still intact despite a devastating pitch pole. Just askin'....

    This Paglia talks a lot of crap. Bernie will run, he will win the D nomination, he will absolutely DESTROY Trump in the General - he will be President. Will probably pick Beto as his VP.

    Wanker and toff? Hardly "shouting insults". You haven't spent a lot of time in a cockeny pub have you.

    Huh? I'm not angry. I'm just saying that throwing that "zen " label at sailors who like to sail long distances; as if they are all on some philosophical mystical bent is; in my opinion, a wank thing to say by someone who really doesn't get it.

    You really don't get it do you. And that's ok. Webb Chiles has written that people either instinctively understand why people want to undertake long solo voyages, and the others that don't get it just keep asking "why". I guess I'm no differently that I keep asking why anyone would vote for Trump. I take issue with your "Zen" term though. Its an easy out to chuck that Pirsig label on people that like to get the hell away from civilization at times and it makes you sound like an English wanker and toff - which I actually don't think you are at all being raised in a council flat. But that term out there has that wankiness about it.
