    SitRep From Paris?

    I’m in Paris now and have been for the last week or so. We are staying in the 3rd and have not visited the 14th, but I can tell you that the Marais is definitely worth at least half a day wandering around. Fine grained street network, great eating and shopping. We were wandering about yesterday around the Notre Dame area and although the Yellow Jackets were kicking off in a few places around the city, all we saw were plenty more police for a few hours. It feels safe, and my god it is a fantastic city. Your daughter is very lucky to be spending some of her studies here MSS.
  2. Where in NZ are you based?

    That's a great shot of the town I grew up in - although I moved there a couple of decades after that picture. The water in the background is now a large marina and the whole area is now a marine service hub for Northern NZ
  4. Hope you all had a great time Suzie! Come back down for the Americas Cup...

    VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Yeah, I thought that was really cool. There was everything alongside them from tinnies to VIP wagons and it just felt like they were digging it, and sharing the love with whoever was out there. We hung with them for a few minutes before heading over to see Steinlager 2, then watched the dock in.

    AC36 - The Venue

    From the above RG article - beautifully put in my opinion "In the current exercise, the point seems to be overlooked that America’s Cup is a sailing regatta sailed and won on the water. It is not a town planning exercise at the end of which a regatta is held to celebrate the creation of a new piece of host city infrastructure"

    Are you sure that’s the same Emma Gibbs? Somehow I doubt Alan and Jenny’s daughter was working as a copper...

    Reymarine ST60 Multi instrument.

    You've installed them sideways. Turn them 90 degrees clockwise and they'll work perfectly

    Yeah, I'm fucked if I know how we managed all those years until the RBYAC turned up......

    Oracle Team USA

    Yeah, I think Simon was putting up all the Team NZ banners in Bermuda that Oracle were taking down! I suspect they'll just have a few beers and laugh about it all.

    AC36 - The Venue

    Yep - that would be my preference too. Close to existing bars and public facilities, easy access - and a good catalyst to get rid of the imported cars from such a prime spot. Just needs those fuckers from Ports of Auckland to let go of some of their precious real estate (which we all actually own)......
  14. Dead fucking right. Happy fucking birthday you legend.

    What was your favorite race/moment?

    It would be amazing if someone more technically inclined than I am could put these into a small "awesome moments" vid package.......
