    Mythical Front Page Upgrade

    Yep. Fuckin Disqus. Every decent privacy protector blocks it.
  2. I recommend the Martin Luther King Cicada for when you've got hold of your rod but your fly needs some attention.

    Dragon me pants off
  4. I understand that the first train failed to protest the truck in what is essentially a self-policing track crossing. Did the second train get redress?

    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    All working here. More worried LH is looking a bit anti-climatic at the moment with WOXI getting a jump on the others. Maybe BJ can catch up. A 5 hour Derwent park up would at least allow some sleep before work...

    Hoping that TTOP can benefit from the other two fighting.

    The "not less than 5 minutes" change was about the minimising penalties for minor or unavoidable incidents within the tight confines of the harbour, such as in a past race where, on a very crowded startline, a crew member reached out to fend off another vessel (in the 1980s? can't find a link) and this cost his yacht an additional 30% time and race victory. It should not apply to yachts in clear water that have full steerage and room to keep clear, such as in this incident. The author is correct that the appropriate penalty for WOXI would have been 30%.

    Great video of sailing a Finn, and how hard they are to sail well. Much too hard for me and most skiffies to do any good at. And that's ideal for an Olympic boat - Citius, Altius, Fortius. Not sure how this is promoting sailing participation though. Those videos of kids having a hoot playing on Bics surely are more appealing to get people into sailing:
