There are generally 2 or three sets of waves the big swell from the prevailing wind, todays wind smaller but on top and another from wakes or reflections of the shore.
The skipper was using the reflections and main swell to travel at about 30 degrees to the main swell. He zig zagged down the coast in a masterful way however I got distracted by the huge (3 metre wingspan) albatrosses which were gliding about and over the boat. one came over me about 2 metres above me - amazing !!!

And it continues. He's a grown man, who doesn't need Dalton's paycheck, and has a history of saying what he believes so pretty sure he's speaking the truth here.

"who doesn't need Dalton's paycheck"

Are you so sure of that? Why do you imagine he abandoned journalism/blogging to return to working in finance in London?

He also has a history of slagging people off, deleting his website and then cosying up to whoever he needs to to ensure that he gets a paycheck. Given the utter shite, he threw in the direction of certain teams and their billionaire owners. I wonder how much humble pie had to be eaten.

He has been on TE's show a few times and best I can tell he retired from his finance career in London. He made his money primarily through early investments in Apple stock.

So do I and I’ve been reading MW‘s stuff for decades, since we read our yachting news on dead trees and he had a fortnightly column in Y&Y. He is just a gossip columnist and if he assured us the Sun was shining, I’d take a damn good look out of the window to check for myself.

So, pretty smart hire by GD then?

Smart/cunty?


when he has put in print the things he did about JR during the last cup is it any wonder he hasn’t been granted an audience. he speaks effusively about first Hand experiences with all the other team heads/owners but then drops into “ I heard a talk he did” when Jim is brought up in that interview.

I have no idea what grudge you are holding against MW but will just say that, in the few times I have contacted him directly with questions, he has been open and honest. He is a good addition to the AC.com writers, says he feels no restrictions, and he's enjoying it. Good for him!

I see. A child-prodigy in stock selection then. Work the dates out.
Seems like he could have been an investor in the 90's or early 2000's and still done pretty well.

MW was asked during a TE show if he had any good investment advice to share, given his career in finance. He said something brief about how, when he and then his family starting using Apple products, he noticed the quality and started investing back then. Said it turned out to be his best move, ever.

Jimmy Spithill slagged GD and Team NZ off for years until Team NZ kicked his ass. Then it all changed... humble pie all round.
Its all part of the game.
