The old don't have to worry about avoiding temptation.

IMOCA far south
I was looking for
ice for my last drink.
But SOL'ers had been there before me
so I say...

"When you're old temptation avoids you".
A man sails on the briny
On a boat exceptionally tiny
When folks laugh a lot
At his virtual yacht
He says "At least, it is mine-y"
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Rod, you're a master-limerick'er
With Due Apologies to Smo

On a sailrace to Cook Strait we go
On the latitudes better stay low
'Cross line to Finnish'
Says Smo who is gin'ish
If you finish you drink more than Smo

... sorry, Smo. This was stronger than myself.
We’re riding the Ocean of South
Enjoying the Limricks of Mouth
The winds are ablowin’
Thank God we’re not rowin’
We should be in NZ this month

(Apologies but not much rhymes with mouth!)
My Handle is a Riddle. Even to Myself

There's a sailor on SOL named Mouthansar
Who begs more of a question than answer
An Ay-rab a muslim,
An Afghan a wit-dim?
Or someone who just entertains ya

Long after I adopted my nick, I learnt it was supposed to be spelled 'Mutaza'. It's Afghan alright. Now I guess it's too late to change it and whenever I read 'Mouth' for short I think of Mick Jagger.
To Shamrock--- Mouth-South-Gout-Lout--trout-spout---in limericks it is your intentions that matter most. We will all forgive you for any accidental non-rhymes---just as long as, like Queen Victoria,---"we are amused"
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Hmmm I thought she was not amused?
But it is very long time since I have heard anything about that so entirely possible I am making it up! ;-)


There was a cool website from Sweden
That sailors all over thought an Eden
They'd plan and they'd plot
Their tracks varied alot
The finish tho' was surprisingly even


We can't forget to include SOL itself!
:-)
I help develop the client interface for the best online ocean racing sim there is... __/)/)_/)__
Recent Research

From a study I've made in the chat
The facts of my research are that
You speak when ahead
Or going to bed
But silence prevails when it's bad

I recall as an upstart on SOL
There was really just one major goal
To chat and say 'Hi'
And see Winston reply
I would feel just so high on a roll

There was a Sol'er from Calcutta
Who sailed a fast Cutter
He was a bit of a nutter
And went too far Souther
Alas, became another Mouthanser

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.
