Got a good idea? Stick it in the suggestion box attached to the mast.


This one needs to be incorporated into the Sailing Anarchy foredeck union t-shirt.

Our bowman to another boat during a windward mark rounding:

"You don't have enough guys on your boat to be saying that...!"

Our main trimmer then held up a winch handle.....


And what boat on Lake Musketucky was he saying that too? Posted Image

I believe we were in Chicago.. from what I can remember of that regatta anyway. It's all a bit fuzzy!

Thanks every one.

PS there are bow girls here too, ahem!


And fine to oggle at too! Way to throw the timing of the rest of the bowguys off because we're too busy looking at you Posted Image


There are lots of bow chicks around these days and some bloody good ones too. Back in the day however, they were a rare but welcome sight.
Many years ago here in Melbourne a young bow chick took unfair advantage of that and caused chaos at a busy (RMYS) gybe mark by simply lifting up her t-shirt to reveal her hooters mid-gybe. This of course immediately attracted the attention and destroyed the concentration of every other bowman nearby.The ensuing carnage was a sight to behold and so was she! Her skipper still talks about it and still claims there was nothing in the rule book against it. He reckons she was the only bow person he ever sailed with who did as they were asked but sadly, she only performed that stategically effective 'Gybe-Peel' once. All names have been ommitted to protect the guilty.

Used that tactic before. Might have avoided an OCS that way. Nobody on the RC boat noticed any boats that might have been OCS because our headsail trimmer was topless and furiously winding on the sheet. Even I was distracted. Big girl too.

There was a Whidbey Island Race Week in the mid 1990s which also was the Olson 30 Nats... I was on my boat but watching from just outside the pin end since I had a bunch of folks I had sailed with in the fleet.

Its kinda light with pin end favoured so a cluster starts there and with about 10 seconds to go the bow chick on a boat that was clearly over early, just took off her top. I watched the line of other bowmen, who had been busy counting off the BLs to the line, just go silent.... BEEEP BEEEP... BEEEP - there were only 3 boats I think that weren't over early and they were 2nd row starters...

Anyone called OCS?

Doesn't work if the line caller is a woman, or the commodore's wife.

But then again - it might, depending on which way she leans.

I tried a guy version of that by dropping trow at a start. It certainly distracted the other bowmen, but dragging that monster through the water slowed us down big time. I've still got a scar on my unit from the kelp cutter, and a nick on my ball sack from the folding prop.

Haha, been here once or twice. We call all of our unwanted knots that end up in lazy sheets "assholes". Assholes stuck in the spin halyard on a douse, in the lazy jib sheet on a tack, ect. Anywhere that a line is supposed to run freely, but is hindered by an accidental knot. And they are always caused by someone aft of the mast by not sorting the sheets before a maneuver.

Bow: Jesus aged Ch*&^, I musy be sailing on Spaceball 1"

Mast: "Ummmmm???? Spaceball 1?????"

Bow: "Yea, Spaceball 1. I'm surrounded by assholes"

Mast: "You talking about knots or people in the back of the boat?"

Bow: "I'll give you two guesses, both are right."

After a millionaire's drop:
To the crew: Do those thing biodegrade?
To that Following yacht: can we at least get the lines back once you untangle it from your keel? They were new!
To the owner: that a3 was getting a bit tired anyway. How much are those thing worth these days?
To his daughter: your old man's a bit bitchy tonight coz he fucked up a rounding and lost the kite. Don't worry you can crash at my place. He said it was fine so you won't even have to call him.

Afterguard on my boat 6mins before the start of the fastnet: why are they all looking at their rig on that IRC42?
Me (from the bow): coz I just slingshot a splitpin against their mainsail. It landed in their cockpit and they now have to decide where it came from and if 608miles with a suspect rig is going to be fun.
Midbow: he's fucked in the head. I'm not sharing a watch with him.
Me: no worries. But this way you'll be asleep when I'm not...

I heard something similar many times from my 67 year old father as he would get ready to set
the kite.

I in the middle would say 5 bucks it miss by a sort hair!

I also love it when a owner puts a new guy on the mast and say what ever you dont let em
hit him in the head with the pole! that make it into a game of how close can you get the pole
with a near miss!

Due to increased age and poundage, I've moved to the mast unless brilliance or body mass is required.

Training the new bow guys/gals I tell them to keep their head behind the forestay... those mates back there will try to hurt you, although I monitor/provide lift on the topping lift... just pull in the slack back there... now!

To the driver: You have the only job on the boat that can be replaced by a machine.




frankly, I'm a terrible driver, I don't understand anything about main trim except keep the upper batten parallel to the boom, Ok but it is curved, what about that? I don't have a long enough attention span to trim the jib spin. I'm strong, have a hard head and can tie knots in anything. Bow is the only thing left. Or tactician.

Umm, yeah except that's usually the wrong thing to do ;). Those cute little ribbons are on the trailing edge of the sail for a reason. Remember that whole wind shear and twist business?
