Celebrating One's Own Birthday:

Many a little will make up a mickle
And your friend, Mouthansar, is now double nickle.
Though still going strong
As he has for so long
His visage now ressembles a pickle.
There was an old sailor called Mouth,
Whose verses were usually 'couth',
He laid out a course,
Hit an island--"Off Course",
And had to stay there for a Month.
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
I heard of this sailor named Rod
Who raced with the whales in a pod
Tho' his courses were keen
He was struck by the spleen
When the gray whales thought he was a cod.
Fortunately whales eat but krill,
It fills up their bellies---but still
They won't eat a cod,
And so not a Rod,
So for 'that' I will send you a bill!
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Oh, by all means send me the bill
With a man with a license to kill
For because of your chivalry
There'll be Cash On Deliv'ry
And this bard will silence his gill.
A show without a smokemachine -
this could not be, what do you mean?
The light goes on
and off I hope -
good fun I add with stroboscope!

(smilie with raised hair..)

We sing and we dance and we play
If we try we could do it all day,
But we still get the 'hook''
We sing from wrong book,
We only do what we may.
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
After watching yet another chat-bout with the computer between Stoerte and his cat, I couldn't resist!

Ode to Stoerte's Feline

While Stoerte sails well on the seas
His cat is the maestro of keys
He now watches his headings
And his counterpart’s sheddings
They both make it seem such a breeze
Ode To Texel

The Texel race with waves so steep
Broken boats, bruised egos and wandering sheep
We round and round to better our times
But all that’s left are a few lonesome rhymes.
On Meeting Friendly Pirates

I know this brave sailor named Shamrock
Who rounded his marks on a damn clock
He is always ahead
And never in bed
And his rhymes are unlocking my liplock

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!
