    Hey Bull, I approached this guy on his mooring and told him of your painting. I later emailed him the SA link. Did he contact you?

    Port Tacking the Feet.

    LB tends to exaggerate. It was a ‘dykes on bikes’ sailing day. ... and yes a few jumped onto LBs boat. They all appeared to have harnesses strapped on too.

    Bob Perry to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award

    Congratulations Bob! A well deserved accolade. I downed tools to drive down to Coupeville and catch the ferry across to PT only to watch the ferry run aground and damage it’s rudder (or a malfunctioning rudder caused a grounding) causing a cancellation of the service. No wooden boatshow for me.

    3 coolboats? Can anyone identify designs? My poor guess on two are: Paul Gartside ( or possibly Lyle Hess) Bill Garden. the third???

    Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Thought I’d drop by to check in on Rimas and relate a story. Last week a neighbor’s boat lawn darted after a mooring chain parted. Everyone remarked on how it could only be achieved by drifting ashore in a complete calm with a falling tide. Rimas always reports his misadventures as being during ‘storms’ but I’m certain the only way you can ‘lawn dart’ a boat like he did is in a dead calm on a falling tide. If there were any breeze and wave action the boat would dry out on it’s side as most boats do when washed ashore in a blow. Rather than be the fool who drifted onto the mud or even worse dragged a poorly set anchor, Rimas blamed a storm. Classic Rimas.

    That’s wonderful Bull! This fellow is moored in the next bay from me. I’ll save it to my phone and show him when I see him next

    Nice find. I love starting a Rozinante fest. When I'm old (er) and not far off infirmed I will have one to see my days out.

    Not here much lately but photographed this on Pittwater (Sydney) last week in a classic Nor Easter. Lion Island in the background

    Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    HWSNBN, Nicole, Reid, Hot Rod, Rimas, Appel... they're all on something and you'd have to take some yourself to ever consider interviewing them.

    Manly Ferry & Yacht Collide On Sydney Harbour

    Video shows a really slow faffing tack by the Beneteau. Perhaps the skipper was distracted by getting passengers across cabintop to windward rail? Eastsail operate a lot of boats very professionally 7 days a week on one of the busiest harbours in the world. That should count for something at the inquiry.

    That's being quoted after 5 years!! There have been a few more scows but the latest thing in Minis is to get them foiling
