"...i am a "she" like most Calamities?!..."

LOL LOL LOL LOL

ShamrockPirate 12:24:
There once was a race to St. Pete
I started quite well with the fleet
The first leg was fast
But I finished dead last
As my DCs steered me to Crete!
<<DO NOT USE FOR NAVIGATION>>
That's a good one, Stoertebaker. I hope Shamrock Pirate will find Crete more pleasant than St. Petersburg.


On Looking Like a Winner till You Don't

Donatella the sail racing ace
Who has led almost all of this race
Found a jolly good breeze
Up at 30 degrees
Which now costs him a bit of his pace

Here is one I saved from Up Helly Aa:

Rod from Up Helly Aa:

Rod 14:32: There was an old sailor from SOL / Who thought that HE knew it all / He DC'd all the courses / But they were for horses / He ended up losing it all.

Onwards Towards Cook Strait - Southern Latitudes Grating on our Nerves

I know a bright woman named Cal
Who's a sailor and everyone's pal
She likes to spank asses
Unlike other lasses
She's a regular salt AND a gal
Awesome mouthansar et al!

Didnt realize I was being discussed in the chat!

Like viking71 - honoured, although he did take out the race so more deserving of it ;-)

This has started yet another 'SOL artform', I will have to put some thought into one myself! I never had the patience to produce 'track art'.

Edit: As gender is not identified on SOL, perhaps using neutral terms unless you know a specific SOLer is a he or she would be good idea?

I help develop the client interface for the best online ocean racing sim there is... __/)/)_/)__
I agree, Aaron. Indeed, I thought that was what I did. Please alert me, if I made a mistake on gender.

And to whomever concerned: My sincere apologies.

Our SOLers will be racing around these amazing waters in none other than our great Seascape 18s.

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
