    Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    What happened to his SS monies? Morbid curiosity makes me want to see him sailing again but I ain't paying for it.

    shit show (front page)

    Thats the best wipe out I've seen in a while. The way the boat comes back to him is hilarious. Thanks for the Friday laugh.

    shit show (front page)

    That boat didn't just trip. Somehow it jump tacked into a death roll or some shit. I guess I just don't get the point of this new crap boat. Its either going to fail miserably, which will be entertaining but not provide any good racing. Or its going to work, and go fast like the cats which makes tacking/gybing slow so we are back to 2 boats hauling ass around a course more or less following each other. The soft wingsail technology is promising but they could have done that in cats. These ridiculous wing/foils aren't anything that will trickle down to any but the most extreme boats. Whats a waste of 4 years...

    Favourite Boat pic?

    You guys need at least 2 or 3 more people on that boat.

    Chiles vs Hancock on what is an "Open Boat"

    Handcock seems to be implying that Webb is trying to skew the rules so he qualifies for some world record. I've never seen him make any such claims but can't say I follow it that closely. But hey, Ed's gotta keep the front page going and lord knows we are all tired of watching him buy boats, pimp the free gear, post self gratifying results(or complaints about the race, PRO or rating) sell for profit, then repeat.

    Merlin at 75 mph

    Relegated to a life of flat water and 8-12 knots. Bummer.

    I don't know what you guys are talking about. Clearly that bottom tell tale is flying perfectly. I think he sees some better breeze on the right side of the course so he's spilling the top a bit so he can put the bow down and get over there. Hey, I just noticed this shows where the mysterious loop of line hanging from the starboard spreader came from.

    I bet he could live off the crap floating around there for at least a year or two.

    Until I see a pic of the body Rimas is alive and sailing on. After his last voyage I haven't even considered otherwise. If we haven't heard of him by June I'll start to worry. Well, not worry so much as assume...

    I'm not sure there is enough caulk in the world for that. Put me down for Vietnam in April. Why? Because why not?
