    Plane Missing

    Or that shipping container. It must have been close to 24 metres or 80 feet in old money. All is Lost just got a release at Brisbane Barracks.

    That stern view has all the chemistry of a RORO. If it isn't fast, that might be a mistake.

    Mocking Ads on Craigslist

    Truth in advertising - it's experimental and it's junk. Charlie indeed does not surf.

    I wonder when its going to be in the southern sky?.... And I reckon Hadfield would be as glad as we are sad he's back. At least.

    Vestas Sailrocket

    Great pics, thanks for the link. The RC landing looks like sticking it on a carrier deck, guess that's down to wind-strength.

    Vestas Sailrocket

    ...And here in the Herals-Sun, so the entire sum of Australian reporting was two items as far as I can see. http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/more-sport/australian-paul-larsen-sets-sailing-speed-record-in-namibia/story-e6frfglf-1226520836617

    Vestas Sailrocket

    Some recognition for Sailrocket in Australian media. This is Warwick Hadfield giving a brief report this morning on Radio National. It can be found after the cricket, golf and hockey, and before the rugby and AFL. http://mpegmedia.abc.net.au/rn/podcast/2012/12/bst_20121205_0756.mp3

    Vestas Sailrocket

    When I look at the small bow foil digging into the water at an angle, all I can think of is ways to reduce resistence further. I think there is 5 knots waiting to be discovered right there for the engineer who can eliminate the resistence and still steer the boat. You realize that the front points into the wind and the foils point more or less in the direction of travel?

    Is this the first sailboat, ice aside, with seat-belts?

    Outstanding effort. Well done to Vestas and the team. Awesome. I cant get my head around steering 20 degrees of lee helm at 65 knots...
