    Transat Jacque Vabre 2019

    No need to read between the lines; from Pip's email update:

    Flying Fifteen: the boat for everyone

    Not too shabby when the wick's up either:

    Brexit, WTF

    Seems the Tory party is going full control-alt-delete tonight. Can't say my sympathy-ometer is reading much above feckall. Also, a (probably slightly unfair) pic of May leaving after having seen BoJo lose:

    Better angle here: What an utter tosser

    You are joking I take it? http://www.ga-asi.com/advanced-cockpit-gcs

    Fastnet 2019

    Not to mention the other reason she was in this part of the world: http://www.hisc.co.uk/media/2845/tasar-world-championshp.htm
  7. That's the Middle Sea Race? https://www.rolexgiraglia.com/easyUp/file/10_bando_giraglia_2019.pdf Giraglia NOR: 4 or 3, for inshore/offshore legs respectively. Most every race over here is World Sailing OSR. Another instance of America wanting to do its own thing?

    Brexit, WTF

    Must confess I thought that last time, when Cameron stood down. Didn't stop them then, so I suspect it won't this time.

    Brexit, WTF

    Leadsom's gone She was, you may recall, thoroughly disgusting during the (last) leadership elections, when she claimed she'd make a better PM as she had kids, then accused the Times journalist who quoted her of 'gutter journalism', before said journo published the transcript https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-36752865

    The 2018 Golden Globe Race

    On the 1st of June, Mark Slats and Ertan B are due to start the AZAB. Are they going to start that race whilst there are still boats doing this one?

    Barge much? (FP)

    Well, yes, but... The counter-argument is how long before the start would they have hade to make the decision to go below everyone? From the start of the video available, they were pinned by the boats to leeward, and could not have borne away even if they wanted to. I'm therefore guessing that they would have had to have decided on that option between 3 and 5 mins before the start. I confess that my experience driving 100' maxis is limited, but I've driven bigger and slower-reacting things and know that there are times that once one is committed, one is commited, and they were most likely trying to get the best outcome from the situation. Note I am not excusing their actions: whilst not trivial by any means, bailing out was the option that they should have taken - a fact I'm sure they'd readily admit. However, to say "well, they should have just gone helm down and passed astern" seems a slightly simplistic analysis.
  12. It just struck me as interesting that this is the second time (to my knowledge) that BR has put pen to paper on this topic, and with a similar theme. Also, for compeleteness, there was a response from @jack_sparrow, with his usual brevity. https://sailinganarchy.com/2019/01/06/if-it-quacks-like-a-duck/ All that said, from WOXI's point of view, surely saying nothing and letting this die would be in their best interests, so perhaps not a WOXI PR spox.
  13. As to background, I couldn't say, but I thought I recognised the name https://sailinganarchy.com/2019/01/04/jaccuse/

    Amusingly enough, I had this drop into my email inbox this evening. This is a new normal for Scally? You might very well think that, I couldn't possibly comment...
