  1. Herman the German in the lead! Good that all of the 8 frontrunners are within an hour of each other. This is tight racing - with so many different design approaches showing the maturity of IMOCA. In the Vendee it might all come down who would withstand the battering & bruising in the Southern Ocean the longest. I see that the body gets the limiting factor. The loads will only decrease with Class Restrictions. A close shave as investments in innovation should not be challenged. But this weekend long we can enjoy the close racing!

    E.U. May ban American Travelers

    Please: Is it not usual for an American to have a passport? Or am I missing something?

    Tracking app on your phone

    Marcjsmith is correct. The smartphone per definition is a trackin device, like any new car. Try https://www.google.com/maps/timeline?pb . You have to decide what you use - there is no 50% pregnant.

    Greatest country in the world

    You are wrong if you base this definition on how the world had rated America. Be fair to America, it had been a leader in many fields. The first America lost was standing up for their constitutional values - and I do not speak about the freedom to wear guns in public.

    10,000 US Troops in Germany ??

    Last month Germany´s energy production was based on nearly 50% Renewable Energy. Feels good. Russion oil? not much. Russion Natural Gas - sure as this is a bridge energy source for decreasing coal. We could use Shale Gas from the US but would not want to assist destroying your landscape. Same for oil sands. As energy prices are down / will stay low you have the choice...

    Speed in current

    Hi Wet Spreaders, try this video. Might be a bit lengthy but it takes away much of the uncertainty of some of the above´s "feelings". Have a look at 19:23 which gives an astonishing view I once had experienced as a kid sailing on an inland river upstream of a barrage. Ih that environment you are mostly close to "land" to see at once the effect of what you are doing. But seeing is not understanding. So enjoy all those embarrasing experiences of sailing in current, that´s life!

  8. An answer to a questions never raised. Although being able to sail in and out of a box has some advantages.

    The rise of the KAREN

    Even the open sea is full of Karens. Karen says: F##ck it all and go sailing https://www.amazon.de/All-Go-Sailing-Everything-English-ebook/dp/B07MYCHBYR And please read those excerpts - if you need a nice present for any sailing-Karens:

    Bullshit. If I believe what several people told me I had not been alone when I was born. Same for the majority of life. But I fully agree to the second sentence - and this one is of importance.

    Your counties fuck around with liquor laws and can´t do the same for gun control?
