    Any Contessa fan?

    That is great, thank you! I love them all, but my dream is one day finding a 32 maybe a bit run-down, and restoring it to former glory, bit like Assent. Sometimes I wish they had continued to come up with own designs, a bit like Rustler. I think the Mystery 35 of Cornish' could have been one of theirs'.
  2. The Romulans were the ones with the Empire, so I think you have the title backwards a bit? Other than that: it's what you get, I think, if you don't pay attention where you are. Could have been worse. Boarder patrol did their job, they have no clue beforehand regarding your intentions or if you try a second attempt once they are out of sight. US agencies would have done the same, pretty sure of that.

    Vendee Globe 2020

    Just listened to Boris Hermann on Vendee Live, recounting his perspective. I think he was still in shock, that was a tough experience. He mentioned the other day that he felt exhausted from climbing the mast at night, days after having done so. So that and Alex' story were already on his mind and than that on top.... I think he aged quite some years last week. Still, you have to admire his -and all others- resilience and determination. To me, the only thing that comes close are early 60's astronauts, you know, when they used to fly alone... Remember: Most of the time, even the crew on the ISS is closer to other human beings than some of these guys and girls... So: superbe operation last night, but also a lot of luck involved, let's hope the VG didn't burn up all its 'luck matches' in one night. And yes, we definitely need to have a look at the engineering and where things go from here, esp. with this crazy Ocean Race idea...

    I christen thee [dramatic pause] 'Brazilian Butt' [sound of a bottle of self-tanning lotion bouncing off the hull].
  9. This is HOW old? My god. I was so young and naïve. Now I'm only ... young.

    Fattest boats

    No soy 'muricano. Soy DEUTSCH a she. with very few exceptions. There is a boat called 'Peter von Seestermühe', formerly 'Peter von Danzig'. It is always referred to as 'Der Peter', so a 'he'.

    Peak Torque was mentioned earlier, here is his take on HB's structural issues. Also highly recommend the video on how bad IMOCAs are aerodynamically, among other interesting bits.

    I love that private cockpit on this Scheel. Bonus points for using the word 'smitten'.
