    best pic of the year?

    This is a 'best picture' thread, not a 'best sail attorney' competition. The shot is not illegal. The action in it may be. But: there is clearly hoisting in progress. The action might thus be brief and necessary, as allowed in the rule.

    Superyacht A mast issues....

    Reminds me of this, very popular in Friesland. As for the wing flutter: Karma.

    I think we need some resuscitaiton here. And I also feel some guilt, regarding my last proposal. But wait for it, there's more. The (possibly former) owner's daughter is a very talented Swedish jazz singer. She won a "Grammis" in her category in 2019. Havsmelodi -as far as my Swedish goes- translates to sea melody.
  5. I have read so much from and about Bob that it didn't occur to me that I haven't heard him speaking in his own voice so far. So: thanks for fixing that Very insightful, nice interview. Keep it up.

    Stay ashore, please.

    At least they could have opened the valves. Another UFO, thanks... But the whole thing seems very fishy to me. A drug-run gone wrong?

    And this. It's actually worth of a World Press Photo, in my view. Contrasting the brutal Australian bushfires, a forceful yet helpless Navy vessel and the elegance of a sailing yacht makes it a remarkable picture. It's maybe a contender for 2020, though. Anyway, my thoughts are with all affected...

    I had never heard of a Finnrose 37 until today. Now I can't forget her.
  10. Happened shortly before Christmas, apparently. Skippers Louis Duc and Thomas Servignat survived in the survival suits, were airlifted by portuguese navy chopper. The boat capsized in bad conditions soutwest of the Azores and remained mainly submerged (which is visible in the video). Boat and crew were found roughly 36 hours later. It is currently unknown if Carac subsequently sunk or remains UFO. The story only came to my attention through a German article on, there is also a story on the FB page of Louis Duc. Anybody with more information?
  11. Bit late to the party, sorry. actually, if that's the price for the whole operation that's not that bad... Hear me out: On the one pic, there are roughly 24 what seems to be paying passengers. That is for marketing purposes, ok, I get it. Therefore, let's say they depart with an average of 16. For a price of 499 AUD each (that's the current price). Twice a week. That's a turnover of almost exactly 16k AUD a week. If they operate 40 weeks / year, that's almost 640 AUD in turnover. Show me another business, where the price of the company is one year's turnover. That's not the normal rate. Of course, maybe something is very kaputt or hidden so deep in the closet that only your lawyer will find it once he'e trying to bail you out, who knows But I agree on the cum stains. Ewww.
  12. I think that's the same designer as for the Héol 7.4
  13. ...and this here has detestable things for everyone. Centreboard-haters and wing-keel-haters. Maybe performs best in its parking position...
  14. I just remembered that J-Boats have this pony in the stable. Not for drying out, though, but for shallow waters. Bit small, maybe? J/95:
