    Class 40 : Normandy channel Race 2022

    I doubt that very much. The UK is fucked along with any thoughts of winning anything, there have been's.  Look at how the French win then get back to me. Dinghy sail and make your way through the ranks  to get where you want to. People who haven't dinghy sailed it shows in  the results.

    Route du Rhum 2018

    Cattle prod big enough ? No . As soon as you jump on a boat single handed it takes a special person to do that. I prefer to sail two handed on a Class 40 and that's hard enough.How many days doing 24/7 and more.  Those who judge have not and do not do it. I for one would not know how to sail a...

    AC 36 Protocol

    75 ft monohull  with wing mast  and foils would be great with six crew max  if possible would make it different. So whats it to be a 75ft skiff or 75ft Moth?

    AC 36 Protocol

    What that the next AC will be sailed by illegal immigrants to get round the rule .There's sadly plenty and I expect they have more talent  going to waste than  the pick of the same old faces at the moment. New people in the sport  is required and that ain't gonna happen in the  good old stuck up...

I will always choose to sail as an Australian as the UK has it's head firmly lodged up it's arse and will always be so. As to building the yachts will be interesting as the...

    Game On

    Why bother with people like that who will not let you compete. Set your own race up and use the local pub as your club, friendlier people and no bullshit. Any one wearing sailing gear in the pub has to buy a round. Simple.

    It's my wife's fault when she cracked Mark over the head with a hoover and now it's coming to fruition.
