    Rules question - defining the start line after the start.

    No she is not. You cannot postpone a race that has started.

    Rules question - defining the start line after the start.

    There used to be two such things in the RRS. Can you remember the definitions of those lines? Bonus point if you can remember the rule number!

    Triggering tight arsed Australians

    Phew, glad you got that off your chest. Although one line would have sufficed. Mumbling to one self and ranting is best kept in the privacy of one's own bathroom. Yelling at the mirror for 2 minutes before breakfast often helps. Here is the edited version:

    Buy a drink for the US Coast Guard

    Katalyst Owner : Wanna go for sail this weekend? Friend: What about Hurricane Ian? KO: Dont worry about it. That's in Florida. 2nd Friend: Shouldn't we check the weather? KO (looking out of his bedroom window) : Okay, I just have, it looks great. Friend: I dont have a lot of experience...

    Triggering tight arsed Australians

    Both charities are specific to AIDs. Its appropriate for me because (i) I like to see charities where if high percentage is spent on the cause and (ii) I know something about AIDs and have visited African villages with a significant AIDs problem and been shown around an orphanage in Kenya. I...

    Triggering tight arsed Australians

    I got several replies to my ad' but unfortunately they were orphaned by AIDs. Based on Shorty's criteria I had to turn them away,.....unless we can widen our concern to the African kids orphaned by AIDs? (which significantly outnumbers the number of kids orphaned by Covid) However then we...

    The Third Booster Shot Debate - Are U going to get the booster?

    Why dont you post data for September that paints completely the opposite picture? I simply posted the data in front of me. I did not search for data or hunt around for data .....or even draw any conclusions from the data. I posted the data and expressed regret that 111 people died per day...

    The Third Booster Shot Debate - Are U going to get the booster?

    Are you guessing or can you illustrate? How does this distort the data? For the sake of argument, illustrate your point if they are included in the unvaccinated.

    Looking for R2AK Boat

    If your total budget for the race is $15-20K.....I think the wrong approach is to spend most of that budget on a POS boat and have nothing left over for customization (peddle drive etc) , equipment, sails, shuttle etc. Charter that tri for $8,000 and spend $5,000 on event expenses. If you...
