    Literally. Wifey put one under the xmas tree for me many years ago. Of course, being me, I turned it on, sucked up some discarded wrappings then pointed it at the tree. A half dozen glass ornaments were immediately sucked in and the kids laughed for hours about the expression on my face. If definitely sucks balls.

    Vendee Globe 2020

    Sorry if already posted... "To account for the complicated conditions for the close finishes into Les Sables in the days to come, the race director decided to lengthen the finish line, in accordance with article 9.1 of the sailing instructions. The line, which was supposed to be 0.3 miles (500 meters), will now be 1.9 miles (3.1 km) extended south. This will give the fleet enough runway to slow down after this remarkable sprint finish." SW

    I find servers in Canada work extremely well. Not much traffic and relatively low latency. Way better than the NZ and UK servers I tried.

    Sure hope Damien Seguin finds a sponsor that says "Let's go shopping for a new boat." Incredible what he has done with an old dagger board 2008 Finot Conq design.

    Why call it a V Berth?

    Because it's Virtual. You go up there, and there really is not a berth. Just a bunch of wet sails, anchors, chain...
