    Did you notice an empty milk bottle tied to the top of their mast?

    JS, I may be misinterpreting this, but you would also require to have access to $600 worth of 'Official' ENC charts to compare to your Unofficial' ECS prior to starting?!

    You will, of course, submit to a mandatory keel inspection before your next sail? https://www.sailingresources.org.au/news/keel-and-rudder-inspection/ https://cdn.revolutionise.com.au/site/lcwlcm16bdvmbsdp.pdf Unless your next sail is Cat 4 or under. Then there is little chance of your keel falling off.

    Thanks GRS, though does appear to be at the wrong end of the hierarchy of control. It appears a control has been implemented across all racing yachts to control a specific incident. I am aware of a handful of yachts losing there keels around the world, and each circumstance different. I am also aware of a large number of yachts that didn't lose their keel. How does this fall on the probability vs consequence scale? At the other end of the HIRAC elimination, well prevention, has AS engaged the relevant authorities in relation to navigational hazards? For example, has AS had discussions with RMS regarding the dangers of navigating Swansea channel and the damage that can cause to keels?

    Dogs! And no full youtube replay. Double dogs. I might just lose interest as I did with F1, limited over international cricket etc sold off to pay TV.

    I think starling speed is a bit faster than seagull speed.

    Well, that's enough for me to pick the winner of the cup.

    Hopefully they are Japanese whalers research vessels clearing the racetrack for the boys and girls.

    Creds to JLC. But check out the track, and manoeuvers of the other three. They weren't going to lose him.
