    And so Grunter, if you see this? Ignore our top babbler, and all the other posters he likes so much! Just do what you always do, and fight the traitors to the bitter end. You've won bigger battles than that, I've heard...

    I heard that Dean Barker was let loose in Auckland just before last weekend. So apparently he only got back 2 weeks earlier. Don't know about the others.

    How about a The Ocean Race thread?

    The real question is: can an Imoca carry a coconut round the world?

    Thanks for the link, Sting! Interesting interview, very open and personal. An amazing sailing and boatbuilding career by a charming and modest character, who also sailed with, and build boats for a lot of other great characters. Well done Jason, and also nicely done by Sailweb's Louay Habib. ouay

    SoPac Starts to Open - Fiji Opening its Borders to Yachts

    Well, the Fiji government's plans for VIP lanes seems to be working, for the billionaires that is. Here an update in The Guardian, not a billionaire's newspaper normally. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2020/jun/28/escape-the-pandemic-in-paradise-fiji-opens-its-borders-seeking-billionaires So, to which resort did those 30 billionaires go? My bet is to Laucala Island, privately owned by the the Red Bull's Dietrich Mateschitz. Prices range from 5-10,000 US$ only. The whole island can be had for about 170,000 US$ per night, a real bargain for the 30 billionaires... See: https://i.stuff.co.nz/travel/destinations/pacific-islands/97686460/lacaula-island-fiji-resort-the-island-with-a-us10000-landing-fee BTW, if you are interested, I can arrange a whole island for a little less, or if you are a Superyacht owner, a whole superyacht marina, all for yourself!

    And here is Ronnie Simpson's version of it, from the Front Page, no less: https://sailinganarchy.com/2020/06/24/the-bula-bubble/

    Front Page "100.4"

    What, the Front page fell off?

    Reference Jim Ratcliffe, I saved this picture of him from early on in the Covid Crisis. Looks rather stressed, understandably. He looks a lot more relaxed later on, in this interview, when things were more under control. Only watched half of it so far, but certainly tells you a lot about the man, and his management style. Obviously the pressure is on for everybody, but my impression is that his true grit will prevail, in the next AC perhaps...

    "2019-nCoV"

    Sorry mate, you rather misinterpreted or misquoted that article. It's: "For patients on ventilators, it cut the risk of death from 40% to 28%." That's 1 in 8 lives saved. And: "For patients needing oxygen, it cut the risk of death from 25% to 20%." That's 1 in 25 lives saved. You were right about "Not an insignificant improvement!" though, or maybe "Not significant" if you are a cold hearted cynic... All a bit over hyped by Boris Cummings, Boris on steroids, I would think. Fuck me dead if the Donald goes on steroids too!

    Rumors in my local sailing club are that Don McInfart is organizing this race, and that a certain Doug Lordy has entered a FoilDrone.

    Could be postponed... What's new. Interview with Johan Salén in Tip & Shaft: https://www.tipandshaft.com/en/the-ocean-race-2/johan-salen-ocean-racing-has-the-qualities-to-emerge-stronger-from-the-crisis/
