    Brain Trust Calls The Cops on Whale

    Dad could've carried himself bit more like an adult, projecting a "Be cool, I got this, meanwhile experience this unique occasion " demeanor, instead of acting like an excited teenager. That being said, mom should hand in her phone until she doesn't freak out at every incident. Self-restraint seems to be an issue in that family.

    Charles Aznavour DTS...

    Always in the background sound of my life, I guess he will remain there because much of his songs will prove to be immortal

    NACRA - finally!

    Well done ricwoz! Thank you for putting in the effort. Have you contacted Nacra Sailing and Nacra Australasia? I guess they have a lot of historical as well as current info available. I hope to be able to contribute to the article in some way in the near future.

    Goodbye to a great comedian, Jerry Lewis DTS

    Had the pleasure to see him perform the role of Mr Applegate in "Damn Yankees" in London in '97. Not a musical lover, but thoroughly enjoyed this one, not in the last place thanks to Mr. Lewis' formidable stage presence! He will be missed, but we'll have the fond memories forever
  9. Many happy returns!

    Hope it will be a day of good memories.
  11. You're comparing a solo non-stop around the world (VG) to a fully professional crewed stage based round the world (VOR) to a glorified round the cans (AC) to an amateur stage based around the world (CR). But yes, the VG has been kicking VOR's ass for ages, since its last edition it isn't even a contest between those two anymore. I gather you don't like foiling boats, man you are going to hate VOR's next incarnation!
