    Yeah he did it

    The benefit of being the sole supplier for a round the world race is all the sails have to be is equal, they can be equally slow. If you think that those were the best sails available, think again. I went aboard one of the boats, the mains were incredibly heavy, but then again, they all were, they had to sail around the world. The jibs were the same, the A sails as well. Ask any other sail maker what the sails should have weighed, were they doing competitive bids, and it would have been a far different story.

    "National Cleavage Day"

    IIRC, she was the partner's sister, and she never became a nurse, it was the brother's hope that she would. Still hot.

    Reducing Anchor Swinging

    it is that take the tail of the anchor rode forward and drop the line off the stern, the boat swings around and you power forward. Have done it singlehanded multiple times. Have you ever anchored?

    More Teachers Behaving Badly

    These things pop up on my Yahoo home page all the time, and I was always amused by the sheer volume of incidents. Now I'm actually starting to wonder about the American school system as a breeding ground for sexual predators.

    Should you round the gate on a knock or a lift?

    Ideally, round the most upwind gate and tack immediately. If you're wondering which is the most upwind gate (given it was square in the first place) it's the one on the side you've spent the most time on down wind (if you've had a longer port tack then round the port gate, and vice versa).
