    Obviously I love sailing. My goal is the london 2012 Olympic games in Laser or in Sailboards, I love to windsurf and I love to keep fit, with gym and triathlons...I also do bow on anything else but have found a new love being in the brains trust at the back of the bus or holding onto the wisdom stick..

    Joke

    George W. Bush and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad meet in Tehran for peace talks following recent hostilities. As they're sat down, Bush notices three buttons on the side of his chair. He pushes the first one and a boot comes flying out of nowhere kicking him in the shins. The Iranian president falls about laughing. He pushes the second button and a boxing glove comes flying through the air and hits him in the face. Again the Iranian president pisses himself laughing. He pushes the third button tentatively and another boot comes flying out of nowhere and kicks him in the balls. Eyes watering, he falls to the floor while the Iranian president struggles for air as he's laughing so hard. Bush staggers to his feet and announces that he's going to Washington - the Iranian president will be welcome to resume talks in three days. Three days pass and the Iranian president arrives in Washington for the talks. As he sits down in his seat he notices three buttons on the side. Eyeing them suspiciously, he presses the first one. Nothing happens........ Bush starts giggling. He winces as he pushes the second one. Again, nothing.... Bush starts laughing harder. He grimaces as he pushes the third one. Once more, nothing happens..... Bush falls out of his seat laughing. The Iranian president gets up in a huff and announces, "I'm going back to Iran." Gasping for air, Bush replies, "what Iran?"

    Joke

    Subject: The meaning of life In the first day God created the dog. God said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years." The dog said, "That's too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I'll give you back the other ten." So God agreed. On the second day God created the monkey. God said, "Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh. I'll give you a twenty-year life span." The monkey said, "How boring, monkey tricks for twenty years? I don't think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that's what I'll do too, okay?" And God agreed. On the third day God created the cow. God said, "You must go to the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer. I will give you a life span of sixty years." The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty and I'll give back the other forty." And God agreed again. On the forth day God created man. God said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. I'll give you twenty years." Man said, "What? Only twenty years! Tell you what, I'll take my twenty, and the forty the cow gave back and the ten the monkey gave back and the ten the dog gave back, that makes eighty, okay?" "Okay," said God, "You've got a deal." So that is why the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, and enjoy ourselves; for the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family; for the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren; and for next ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone. Life has now been explained to you.

    Why should you never fall in love with a tennis player? To them, "Love" means nothing.

    One question guys, how do you fire the tack line on the kite with such a lengthy prodder?? Saw the boat out at sandy today, It looked like the guys working on it were wet rubbing her bottom...Am i right in my suspicions?

    right so you really on do it on offshore races, this will be for short w/l at kings cup and for passage races in raja muda, so not much time between sets and drops. BTW have any of you guys been dropped in the water before??? I was out doing a peel the other day, when the person on the halyard dropped me, must have thought the clutch was closed but it wasn't. ended up with that tack in my favoured hand and left to do a 1 armed chin up, not much fun. managed to get the tack on just in time though, ended up sitting out on the end of the pole though waiting for somebody to realise what had happened. and yes i did yell but to many flapping sails me thinks....main was flagging, going from a 1/2 ounce runner to 3/4 ounce reacher. Scary sitting out the end and watching the carbon pole shake in the middle. anybody seen that before??

    newbie bowman tips

    Right i shall try that... The power of beer is amazing!! Thanks for the advice The boat i race on has a pople much longer than J. We always leave it attached to the mast, with topper always attached, If i want to swap it over from one side to the other i just disconnect the butt end and chuck it back to the halyard girls, I change its direction and they chuck it back out to me. Only works well if you got somebody good on the topper, otherwise you just gotta sky the butt end and swap it sides, This maybe quicker once i get a mast man into action! Here's another question for you....Do you band you're chute?? I don't really no anything about banding the chute, anybody got any info on what you do and why we do it. cheers

    Hey guys thanks for the ideas and your thoughts on how to apporach these situations! Hey FM chill bruss I was aksing of a way to go about this instead of just making a fool of myself in thinking that he should have to help me, maybe a mastmans job was to just pull sails up then chill on the rail. i didn't know..... Cheers JRTC

    newbie bowman tips

    Hey guys, Throughout this season i've been doing bow on an old school Cassidy 55, bit of POS but fun to sail on anyway. I've been invited to go up to asia and to race Raja Muda and Kings Cup with the team. My mastman is a great guy and is really strong, can hoist the main by himself and get the masthead up the quickest i've ever seen. The problem is that he thinks that that is his onl;y job on the boat. Now although i'm very fit i'm still not massivly strong and have trouble carrying around JT's, Genoa's, Jibs etc by myself. He just sits there and watches me struggle and never gets off his fat ass to help me! My question is should the mastman help with moving sails around or should I just quit my bitching and get super strong in 3 weeks??? How would you go about approachim him to ask him to help?? BTW I'm only 17 so everybody treats me like a bit of a DH, I can stear the boat like my father can, either 2 degrees higher or a 1/4 knot faster, and can Trim failry well as well but still everybody ignores me when it comes to TACTICAL decisions like what sails to use, what way to go, etc. As the bowman should i just shut up and wait for an opening as a trimmer or helmsman or similar?? Cheers JRTC
