So this one just looked too good not to have a little fun with, right? We have a $50 gift card from the sponsors of this week's caption contest, West Marine, for the best one. Have fun! Thanks to anarchist Cous for the shot.

To cut costs, we have begun a program of weight reduction through appendage removal. Initial work with our fleet of trimarans has shown great success and the lessons learned will soon be carried over to our fleet of 737 aircraft.

NEWS HEADLINES! Sydneys latest invention. sydney has spent months on end, developing the technology by himself, and now it has come thru a great success. Its an invisible potion!!!! heres the latest from sydney/

Sydney> Yes well thanks, ive based my design in order to reduce drag, but still be able to keep the heel down, my theory is, if i cant see the hull touching the water it isnt. so far ive only tested it on starboard tack, and it works very well. i have been blindfolded tho. some might think that would have been an easier option than inventing an invisible potion.

Me> somones imagintation is running a bit wild today. sorry folks

Having decided that conventional record sailing simply did not provide significant challenge, Team Oman prepares for the World Outrigger Speed Record.

OK crew, remember when we tack, the first thing we do is, swap the ama to the other side........gybing is a little tougher.... and dont worry we will practice a few................

The latest round of modifications to BMW Oracle take weight saving measures just a little too far, whilst reducing the already impressively low wing drag to nothing at all...

Loosely translated . . .

 

So Oman Air, you've led a good life, and you've done your job?

 

Oman Air: No I haven't

 

But you're dead

 

Oman Air: No I'm not. I feel fine!

 

But you're missing an ama

 

Oman Air: It's a flesh wound. Wait! What the hell happened to my AMA!?

 

So when you died, did you see a white light?

 

Oman Air: I saw a blue J24! Do you really have one of those boats?

 

Yes

 

Oman Air: *That's* not a car! That's a lunch box!

Skipper to baffled french media- 'I'm not an ambiturner!' (For those who don't recognize it it's from zoolander)

When I said I could only afford 2/3rds I didn't mean you should do that!

Since all records have already been broken we will attempt to be the first boat to sail around the world on a starboard tack only and you can see by the design of our boat how committed we are.

In an effort to make sailing appeal to a mass audiance, Oman sail takes a cue from NASCAR, and creates a brightly sponsored vehicle that can sail at high speed in one direction only.

Multihulls are now poised to catch up with the latest in monohull technology.

 

In the patented "Canting float" design, massive hydraulic rams will swing the float from one side to the other, over the top of the main hull.

 

Only one detail remains to be determined: Where to put the mast?
