    Snowflakes and sailing

    I thought it was only in Tasmania you got a rule 69 compliant against you for what you post on here. Thought it was a special Rule there.

    Allegedly the story goes like this. So a DK 46 and a First 40 sailing downwind in light air on opposite gybes. Each boat sailing best VMG DK 46 is on starboard First 40 is on port It is after sunset. Boats converge. Simple or not so simple!

    Maybe I have been looking at this wrong. Live streaming to pay tv. how much do you get for Funniest Home Videos?

    Not anymore mate, plenty of mobile phone cameras now days. Maybe that is what the NoR needs, requirements that mobile phones be left at the door.

    Jack, last time the fight kicked off pretty quickly so they will time to get the bets on mate. It is the undercard I am worried about. Thinking about using LB as a rabbit, anyone can have shot at the title for $100. That will shake out a bit like who will bet on LB and Shaggy could be good for a dive!

    Jack, deal with me , you take the security and the entertainment but the betting pool is mine. Alternatively I take 15% of your pool for 5% of mine but you provide security for my runners. It is just business!

    Could be some great new trophies though! The Glass Jaw Cup for most underperforming big boat The Southpaw Cup for the best performed boat not from the host club The Jimmy Sharman Shield for best showmanship by any crew The Mundine Plate for best radio communication by a navigator The Rocky Balboa Cup for oldest boat in the top ten. Possibilities are endless.

    What you mean, like any good club it circles the wagons and protects the chosen ones. It's board members anyway. The Rule 69 inquiry I imagine has been parked at the bottom of someone's drawer at AS and will never see the light of day again. So now the personal injury and defamation matters play out in the civil courts. Going to be expensive for someone.

    They are bit closer than 40 paces I believe. Only just starting really.

    I hear our bowman is Jeff someone. Says he can’t sail this weekend as he is a bit sore but promises to make weight for the race.
