    She's still alongside in the same spot as yesterday, most of the yachts have been discharged, in fact looked like they were floating early afternoon. One larger power boat at the ass end still on an angle and to be honest, the transport doesn't really look any different with relation to her angle of list. As mentioned above, she didn't really sink...just ballasted in an unplanned manner! The Daily Bulletin is a bit of a tabloid, so likes to sensationalise news.

    No one gets a tour of the sail container without bringing beer or their (or someone's) cute Sister! The On the water footage was certainly at an peak when we had Audi paying for the MedCup, the German TV guys and girls do a pretty solid job with what they're given, the budget doesn't allow for on the boat camera work or full 5 day live coverage. Shame none of the MedCup videos are still available on youtube. Andy has done a few tech interviews and walk throughs, Quantum's social media feeds and online Vidoes are still the best due to the budget and all the hard work by Keith Brash, the man behind the lens.

    Sad Sack 12?

    The guys who raced n the Js were usually professional Trawlermen, racing the J Boats out of fishing season and returning once the Sailing season shut down/FIshing Season began over the winter.

    Front Page Item Re Minis: "Safe Bet"

    I was lucky enough to spend a weekend in Lorient recently supporting The Magenta Project Figaro Clinic for upcoming/budding short handed and offshore sailors. Great group of motivated women from diverse sailing backgrounds and not just French, but British and American too. Now, back to the case in hand...Minis, as I'm sure you're aware, Lorient 'La Base' is one of the Breton hotbeds for offshore short/single handed sailing and the hardware on display was simply awesome, Minis to Ultimes. There were 10 minis in the water who sailed on the Saturday in what looked to be a on water coaching clinic, most sailed 2 up and a wide variation in designs and generations, including a couple of production Scow Bows. They beat out of the harbour into Quiberon Bay, plenty of short taking up the beach, the Scow Bows went to weather pretty nicely in a short chop once heeled in the 17-23kt breeze, but it was obvious of their tendency to slap when flatter. The older regular designs were pretty fast too. Just so cool to see so many together, there was a parking lot with 15 minis that ranged from mid 200 Bow Numbers to upper 900 Bow Numbers. A fair few scowbow boats, but all Production (Maxi 650) as far as I could see. Will try to get some photos uploaded here. The above is I guess just an anecdote to the thread without offering anything new.
