    VOR AUCTION - OPPORTUNITIES LOST & STILL THERE?

    With an average divorse rate of 53%, maybe we should wait for at least the happy couple's first anniversary before declaring this marriage a success?

    Coolboats to admire

    Any of the good folk up in PNW heard/know about the restoration of the 1907 Albert Strange gaff cutter Tally Ho up in Sequim, WA? A British boatbuilder, Leo Goolden has been working on her off and on since about June last year. It's very nearly a complete rebuild by the look. Excellent video blog (26 postings so far) of Leo's restoration efforts here: http://sampsonboat.co.uk It's worth a look if you're into classic yacht restoration.

    Because, Elisa there are many more lard-arse useless guys taking up space on couches all over the world. (I speak from a little bit of personal experience here ) They've gotta watch something, right? Which kinda supports your man's comment about what he prefers to watch. I can relate.

    Front page and national TV in NZL - all about how Charles spoiled the party for Pete and Blair. Ha, ha. Still, Stu and Daryl were aboard DongFeng, right!

    "Fuck", is right. Not much more too add. Bloody good effort for the latter half of the race though. Just a pity it took so long for them to find their wings and fly.
