    Port Tacking the Feet.

    Maybe it is just another of those Blackaller stories, but he was reported to hang fenders out to windward, just to make it 100% clear.

    Port Tacking the Feet.

    Are we talking about a port tack approach about one to two minutes before the gun or about crossing the fleet on port on the first leg? The former works pretty well in mixed fleets with a long line. There will always be a hole to tack into. The latter only works if you’re fast and the pin end is really, really, really favoured and nobody notices except you and your tactician... (BTW, yelling fake rules wouldn’t get you anywhere over here. Even on casual wednesdaynighters there are so many ex-Olympians and ex- or standing Champions in the fleet... they would just put on their poker faces and aim straight at your topside.)

    I think there's enough Aussies here already.

    How about 100ft monos?
  5. Does anybody really think these things are raced offshore in the true meaning of the word? - Come on! So why put stupid gut cutters on a good raceboat? If bowman falls off, the RIB tender will pick him up. The M24 is the worst example for that idiocy - would be a really nice boat with proper hiking straps, really!

    Someone has been naughty!

    This is the first time I recall that I think a rule 69 is appropriate. All these idiotic cases where somebody yelled "fuck" too loudly, got a little salty at the bar, or puked onto a local policeman's shoes were ridiculous. But here we have a convicted cheater who bluntly lied about his cheating in a protest hearing. Fuck that arsehole. Throw him out. For a long time.

  11. Yea, thats what the sport needs - pumping, airfucking and medal lotteries races! I also turned it off in disgust somewere in the middle. Bleagh! (At least I had a good laugh when the commentator said one finn sailor got penalized for pumping at the start. I mean do they penalize rowboats for rowing now?)

    It was Elvis! He invented waterskiing closely after he invented rock'n'roll.
