  4. A small sample of the many hundreds of photos I took today from the Hurst Castle vantage point. Skorpios, Hugo Boss, Apivia, 11th Hour Racing etc. I will add more tomorrow when I have time to edit - the Ultims etc. Enjoy the boat porn.... ;-) Linky here :- Fastnet 2021

  6. Fuck you. Just absolutely, no questions about it, fuck you. I guaran-fucking-tee you wouldn't look at my nephew and openly share your selfish self-centered comments. His parents are at their wits end watching their son suffer. And, you have the fucking gall to question the parenting abilities of actual fucking parents. You are way the fuck out of line. Go to the fucking gym and breath on some others. Might make you feel like a man, you Tebow-jockstrap sniffing asshole. Seriously, Gaston. Fuck you.

  7. Maybe a re….or first time read of “Silent Spring” by Rachel Carson (one of my hero’s) is in order.

  8. I’m at the club in the rain and one of our sailors who is a past Olympian is presently tweaking his E Scow for next week’s race. He came up through our sailing program and is one of maybe 6 local sailing Olympians that I know-3 through our junior sailing… So, I have to assume that they wanted to get to that level for some reason. I can still beat them in PHRF when the wind is just right.

  9. Bullshitters gotta bullshit. We can’t let the terrorists rewrite the history of Jan. 6 History, the adage goes, is written by the victors. Would that it were true. In the Civil War, the U.S. Army, at a staggering human cost, eventually crushed the traitors who took up arms against their own country. But Lost Cause mythology rewrote the rebellion as a conflict over states’ rights, portrayed Confederates as gallant heroes fighting impossible odds, romanticized plantation life and sanitized slavery. The fictions, taught to generations of southerners, fueled Jim Crow and white

  10. When I was first getting into sailing a very experienced guy I knew told me that ports at the end of a long haul were the best places to buy an ocean crosser - Gibraltar, Panama, Hawaii etc. That's where the dream crashes for many people when they realize they have to do that again to get anywhere. Plus the boats are a lot more likely to be fully equipped.

  11. You know, the more you respond with dumb one liners the more you prove you are full of shit. If you didn't care you would stop responding. It's quite entertaining watching you lose your shit (and threaten me if I ever came to Ensenada) while a faceless, nameless testosteronly challenged candy-ass calls you stupid on a website.

  12. Apivia making a move to get over the top of Skorpios. Foiling conditions at times and Apivia has the best boat in the business for flying. Charal and Arkea doing really well also moving up flying on foils.

  13. ^ sorry for you bro, and all affected over the ditch there. "But for the grace of God go" us. No shortage of idiots and the evil bug seems to amplify their actions or lack of. I was describing to an acquaintance I saw right after my first shot the "gom jabbar"; it occurs to me that the vax is kind of a reverse gom jabbar.. A test of being human and having compassion.

  14. Apivia is match racing a boat twice her length (Skorpios). and has left the other Imocas in her wake, have they finally found a way to make a foiling Imoca sail fast upwind?

  15. Apivia is stalking Skorpios. Amazing stuff by Apivia who either has new foils or has a new mode the others don't? Yeah Rambler is not going as fast up there but I'm tipping Butterworth said no use following a 125 Footer around the course.! So they maybe taking a gamble with the hope it will pay off. They are behind Apivia who is going faster than them by quite a bit too. Apivia will need pressure to hang on Skorpios so if it goes light I expect the big beast to extend. Great to see Skorpios still on the track as you said they could have easily been an early retirement...

  16. Interesting moves by Rambler going North of the Lands End TSS... Happy to see that my prediction of Skorpios bailing before Lands End was incorrect, the big thing is still rumbling to windward Apivia is having an absolute stormer, seriously impressive lead over the rest of the 60s. Good to see Paprec hanging with Charal too.

  17. The US College system itself has very little to do with lack of success for the US Sailing team. The decisions of top level US talent to forgo olympic training in favor of sailing in the US college system is a problem (aside from 470 sailors, where perhaps the US college system is relevant)...

  20. Yeah, a heck of a lot of evidence our leaders did not fully comprehend the radiation dangers, like those old films of having troops next to ground bursts in Nevada tests, and that one where a few guys stood at ground zero under an airburst just for shits and giggles during the 50s. To the people back then it was pretty much just a big bomb, and I suspect the notion of not using it hardly crossed Truman's mind. We were well into the total war mindset wherein slaughtering whole cities was but another day at the office. Yes, the Japanese were sending a few diplomatic feelers through the R

  21. Thanks all, this was Mac race 22 for me about 19 as skipper of Bad Dog, Have had a couple of 2nds and a 3rd bit this was my first 1st place, 17 overall. Never really thought it would happen LOL. Followed it up with line honors, first in section and first overall in the Around the Island Race so it was a really fun week!!

  22. ^^^ This, Murdoch is beyond despicable he is a the real life Bond villian. Every political leader the world over knows he can make them or break them. Nothing will happen to him, he operates with impunity. He has made his money hacking phones and computers, paying insane amounts for tittie photos of princesses and spreading outright lies He continues to do so. Until he and his enablers are bought to account you will continue to witness the slow death of democracy across the world because of the outright lies he and his minions tell because of ratings and advertising dollars

Let’s dress up in garish outfits and tons of make up and dance in the pool dressage, specially bred high stepping horses rhythmic gymnastics, tie a piece of silk to a stick and twirl it around while dancing speed walking.

  30. Here in California I've put up a couple of bat boxes. Each will hold 50+ little brown bats, and one bat in one night can eat its own weight in mosquitoes. It seems to have a major impact on mozzie populations.

  31. There's a company registered at NZ Companies House as Team New Zealand. Clearly, gives the names of the directors, there is more than a random relationship to the sailing team of that name. It isn't legally owned by or controlled by RNZYS. I don't think that should be a surprise to anyone.

  37. At the National Art Gallery in Dublin, a husband and wife were staring at a portrait that had them completely confused. The painting depicted three black men totally naked, sitting on a bench. Two of the figures had black penises, but the one in the middle had a pink penis. The curator of the gallery realized that they were having trouble interpreting the painting and offered his personal assessment. He went on for over half an hour explaining how it depicted the sexual emasculation of African Americans in a predominately white patriarchal society . "In fact", he pointed out, "some s

  39. Just finished 1st visit. Deep draft and alum mast. Owner wasn't aware of his rating, thought it was 138. Mast step reinforced, no visible leaks or water damage. Will need cabin refinished and flooring replaced (marine plywood), very dry bilge. Put earnest money down, scheduling survey and sea trial. Hope no deal breaker issues.
