  1. I am sending this as a PM instead of adding to the grief of any family that may read this thread. I have several mates on board Scallywag and I say this on their behalf. Delete your account you piece of shit and if you ever post again you will be flamed from one end of this forum to the other. Remember this is a small world and someone might even know who you are in real life. Fuck off you low life cunt.

    VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    maybe wrong time for this .. but is there a very unfortunate pattern on scallywag
  3. how about this one ... https://yachthub.com/list/yachts-for-sale/used/sail-monohulls/volvo-60-modified-to-sled-77-ft-racing-maxi-yacht/204477 size matters !

    VOR 2017-18

    watching mainsail on CNN ... with all the experienced ocean racers out there why would Brunel risk having inshore racers who have never done an offshore boat race for them ... seems a bold move to me
  5. should yachts over 80 ft have to go along the west coast of tassie tand the rest of the fleet does the east coaster !!!
  6. keep the current boats and save some money ... and save the race

    would you sack mark richards ?

    why would you not sack professional sailors if they fail ? if it was another maxi he would be gone ... commanche sold after skipper and owner fell out but WOXI is sailed in honour of and for the memory of Bob ... plenty of crew come and go on the maxis ... there are plenty of world champs / gold medallists who race on these ... how can the tactician survive this ? this was complete stupidity by the brains trust on wild oats which cost them the record this just wasnt a bad call during the race ... it will be interesting to see what happens with WOXI and her crew after the dust settles .. and sparrow takes some sedatives ...

    would you sack mark richards ?

    i thought this topic would bring up lots of discussion if owned a yacht that was going to have the race record which hold for years.. i would not be happy
  15. bad start, then red mist, then you dont make penalty turns and you loose line honours ? who will pay the price ?
