    Brexit WTF, WTF

    That one brings up a big smile ... had a good friend keeping his little yacht (a Contessa26) in Menai strait, Port Dinorwic. Visited him a couple of times to either do the tour of Anglesey or sail over to the Isle of Man for the TT races. On one occasion we had the funny idea to hold a mussel competition, I would make them our way, he would do it his way, but then we had to find mussels first, and to our utter surprise they were ever so hard to find, the surprising thing was knowing on the Bangor side of Menai strait there were huge mussel seed trawlers operating all the time, so the seeds are there but no mussels. At the end Tesco's in Bangor gave us the solution : mussels officially taken out of the Oosterschelde in Holland but sure as hell the seeds came out of Bangor. Now see how that will go. p.s. my good friend conceded that I won the mussel contest hands down ... good times, pity he ain't there anymore, sic transit gloria (swanson)

    ^^^ care to explain what is old news in an article published on 22 oct 2020, are these guys from The Times so outdated ? inquiring minds from the other side of the soon to be fenced channel (Mexico to pay) want to know

    inexperienced couple buy a p.o.s. catamaran

    but the jury is still out if this is for real or a very cunningly constructed sock, maybe after 15 announcements of video's we might see if it is Left, alpha, Bravo or whatever side of the forumshpere.... if for real, ok, if not, bloody well done, hats off.

    best mag for sailing binos

    was carrying my binos in the backpack on the motorbike, while cornering at about 120km/h the backpack zipper broke, bino flew out and got projected against protecting rail at the side, result : no bino anymore but 2 mono's. compass24 online chandlery, costs less than 100 eurodollars, waterproof and built-in compass, certainly not the best of the best of the best but worth the price and seems rather unbreakable for the "dropping challenged" among old to near-derelict salts
