So no work on WOXI this year? Surely some appendage tweaks must be in order. It's too quiet....

Word is it is getting some work done so not going to Hammo this year.

Word is that replacing the fried splitter was a much bigger job than they had anticipated.....

I just woke from an amazing  dream. It was like ground hog day - I dreamt I had been woken by the alarm set to the 5am news on the radio. It was 2044 and the news reader said Kelly slater had just won his 25th world title at the age of 67, Bill Shorten had just been released from prison after serving 20 years for being a cunt, the LNP were celebrating its 10th consecutive federal election victory, Bernie Sanders was standing for president again at the age of 112 and Wild Oats XI had just taken line honours in the S2H for the 34th time. I got out of bed, looked out the window and saw that the sea level was still the same as it was in 2019. Turning on my laptop I logged on to sailing Anarchy to find Scooter was still single, Randumb was still posting Clint Eastwood Memes and this thread had just reached page 23,427. 

Fuck no more coffee for me before bed!

And we’re getting ever closer to another new page!    Great work team, see, even Random has stepped up to help the cause..  You must have really looked after him well in the cellar.

Random must have seen the light and is making a lot sense in the Larry Circus AC thread lately. He must have been in therapy somewhere, but very unlikely that it was in Iggy 15's cellar though.

Me and other esteemed posters are actually giving him plenty of likey's there, quite a phenomenon...

So is WOX entered with Richards skipper of both. Maybe he has a "stunt double" now. His hairdresser will make 2X the money.

Burkey skippered XI in the B2K last year and I think he is listed as skipper for the B2HI on X this year.

Hairdresser? Whatever that is on his head, it never, ever moves, I reckon its moulded out of carbon fibre.

Randumb does your IQ ever exceed room temperature?

Well are you suggesting he's using Fahrenheit or Celsius?

Everytime I open SA I am confronted with stories on Wild Oats and Mark Richards.I even had to watch a video with Michael Coxon interviewing Mr Richards after the Cabbage Tree race debacle. How amazing the Oats crew was and how amazing their program is and how amazing it was they kept the rig in the boat. Then there are stories of Jim Cooney selling Comanche and it could be bought by Team Scallywag? I am starting to feel sick and this thread doesn't help things.......................................:D:wub:

Fuckin chill out guys..last years controversy of whether WOXI was carrying the prescribed number of Australian Institute of Septuagenarian (AIS) sailors and Centrelink affiliated as actually working or not on board is ancient history...word is Richo is fronting up for the 75th this year even more smelly....vessel race compliance.. getting it out of the shed in time etc ...you watch.
