As the rest of the fleet sailed across the harbour, John knew he was in trouble when he discovered he couldn't fit under the boom.

Get with the program old timer, bailing has been cancelled.

 

 

Also, why would anyone make and / or buy a boat that resembles an Opti?

Because Optimist are awesome boats for kids and these cheap roto plastic ones are indistructable and being heavy more stable for kids to learn in

"Although many praised the new 2 Meter Americas Cup design spec, arguing that strict cost controls would encourage more challengers to step up, others felt the Royal New Zealand Yacht Club's design rules were more than a little bit passive-aggressive."

In 1967, young Johnny Smith, aged, 10, left his shoreside home after a heated argument with his parents regarding being allowed to stay up late that night and watch the Beatles telecast on the Ed Sullivan show. He determinedly stormed off, shouting that he was going to run away form home and sail around the world and never come back. After Johnny failed to show up for dinner that night, his parents noticed that his Optimist was gone from their dock, with no sign of Johnny. Over 50 years later, Johnny completed his circumnavigation, at an average speed of 0.000046 kts. "It took longer than I thought, I guess I should have taken some extra food with me", he said, after beaching his boat at the site of his parents' former home.  "But at least now I can watch the Beatles on TV and nobody can tell me I can't!"
