    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    So TtTOP decided to do a Scallywag. Bet David was a bit surprised he didn't have that tail-ender option this time around.

    A word of encouragement, SS. There's NEVER a bad week to give up smoking. Disclosure: Reformed smoker - 43 years and still counting.

    Newport, Rhode Island has always been a yachting snooze fest, even during the America's Cup, as I recall.

    The Red Head Twins are setting a cracking pace. This is going to be brutal, but mercifully quick.

    Congratulations Team BRUNEL, the form team right now. Hopefully they haven't left their winning run too late.

    Lovely boat, S4B. A planked beauty which reminds me a bit of this Woollacott 28'.

    Coolboats to admire

    A bow sprit and flying jib to balance the sail plan a bit more would certainly help. She has sweet looking lines though.
