    Flying with Spinlock Deckvest S-Cutter: carry on?

    I don't understand the question. I can't imagine flying to a race with just hand luggage.

    Stupid Crew Tricks...

    I would rather say that thinking things through before I speak, is not my strong point

    Stupid Crew Tricks...

    Prepping the boat for Antigua Race week, owner was diving to clean the bottom. He didn't have any weights so it was hard work, holding on to a rope and just having one hand free to scrub. During a break, we talked about what we could use for weights to tie around his waist, when I spotted two big empty water bottles. And then I felt really smart and suggested we fill them with water, they'll be real heavy. He still laughs when he sees me.

    The 2018 Golden Globe Race

    It must have been difficult to get the stretcher downstairs, hmm. Maybe they gave him some painkillers so he would be able to get himself out of there. But I imagine that getting that iced tea must have cost him a lot of pain and energy, and probably that was all he managed/prioritized to do.

    Well, on the other hand they don't have much choice....it would have been more impressive to do the same, a couple of miles from land - where the option to give up is more real

    Or female.

    Are Mount Gay Rum Hats Cool?

    My Volvo gear is not team branded....just general Volvo and clean ocean stuff, that the volunteers used in the race villages. Is that less wankerish? But I actually helped move the boat in Gothenburg so I might be entitled to wear team gear....

    I don't think anybody seriously means that emergency services should check if people in need, possibly can be to blame, before they decide to help or not. Putting their lives at risk for fools is what they DO. Not all people have the competence to assess what is risky or not. And weather in particular can be difficult to predict. That doesn't mean we all stop sailing, does it. That being said, in a big situation like this, of course the option is to cancel all emergency services in general, to protect the lives of the people who work there. I understand that choice. But in general - risking their lives is what they DO.

    Are Mount Gay Rum Hats Cool?

    They are yellow now. At least it was when I went, two years ago I never wear hats anyway, I prefer visors. If they gave out visors, I'd wear them, no matter how it looks. Now, how about gear with logos from the Volvo? Not veeeeeeery cool, are they? I mean, it just says you DIDN'T do the Volvo. I got a visor and a fleece from a friend and I actually wear both.....but hey, I'm so cool anyway. Haha
  12. I guess the article just says she was the only female OBR in this last edition, not the first female OBR ever. But yes, good article Why being the only female OBR is such a big deal, I don't get, though. Shrug. I think their work is the point, not their gender.

    Boat Captain/Manager?

    Living in a social democracy, so sharing the cost and labour comes natural for us. We all help with all boat maintenance. Last year the polishing was outsourced, and the workers polished EVERYTHING, including the foredeck. That was not pleasant. This year we did it ourselves.

    It's possible to get help if you have low testosterone levels, you know.
