    Nope.
  3. Give Salty a tap on the shoulder. He seems to know her quite well - in his dreams at least. ;-)

    I'm sure they both share your enthusiasm, DG!

    A step too far, I think Groucho.

    My understanding too, is that it was the Whompers which were about to fall apart.

    Well, there was one race - where OTUSA changed to their upwind boards (Race 5 was it..?) where they showed blistering speed off the start, only then to be overtaken by ETNZ through an early gybe - and then ETNZ just soaked down over the top and the wingwash did the rest. Those boards looked fast in the higher breeze, but not so stable. Apart from that, I didn't see the obvious boat speed advantage, Stinger thought he saw.

    Just as well. He'll need it with this crowd. ;-)

    Well, you can fuck-off too. Patronising bastard! Ha, ha. :-)

    That's too bad. I guess we can be over the top, on occasions. There have been a few 'burnt' over the years. Quite a few MIA this go-around - unless they're back in the sock draw. I think I recognise a couple.

    Either that, Stinger, or the NYYC was 'in distress', at seeing the prowess of its competition! Good story.

    I see Michael Hill's boat in the background, taking a close interest in proceedings.
