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


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!
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

BIG CINEMA Mouth, your lim'ricks are amazing! You're an Irish by nature? :-)

3 cheers

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.
