    On seeing Bonknhoot's threat to my third place in the Newport Timed Race 2020

    Brother Bonk is a jolly, old geezer
    Who's determined to sail like a Ceasar
    I'm beginning to think
    My result may well sink
    Who needs podiums with friends such as these, huh?

    On a Farr Far Away ....


    There was an old fellow from Denmark
    Who was searching in vain for a landmark
    He made his way East
    The Farr is a beast
    But alone he's devoid of a benchmark.

    There's a wedge coming down from the North
    Who knows what will happen henceforth
    Next WX might show
    Which way the winds blow
    As for now, we foresee a tack port(h)


    Good luck to my fellow Go4it
    I doubt he and I will deplore it
    We chose a route South
    He followed the Mouth
    And by now, by Jove, we'll explore it

    There's another old fellow named Wolff
    Not a man you'd expect to play golf.
    Oh no, he's a sailor.
    Very rarely a failure.
    In fact, as a sailor he's prof.


    My ancient aquaintance Go4it
    Is in favor of North here pre audit
    Not knowing the weather
    I am wondering whether
    The new wind shows gains or a forfeit.

    On the imminent threat of being Bonk'ed:

    When you're racing a close race with Bonk
    You're in trouble much more than you thunk
    On your stern with a grin
    You cannot let him in
    This is one race you don't want to flunk.

    Celebrating a fickle 3rd place in Hong Kong to Auckland:

    There once was a man named Mouthansar
    Who lived his life chasing a stanza
    His mind in the bends
    Harassing his friends
    And just now in a sailing bonanza.

    Furthermore:

    There's a species of the coyote
    It's a prominent 'Stralian' floaty
    Not quite like the gringo
    It is known as a Dingo
    A poetic and competent boatie.

    <i>Extracts from a chat somewhere past St. Ana on the way from Hong Kong to Auckland ... gobsmacked by the Doldrums:</i>

    <b>Mouthansar:</b>
    Will you go to the East or the West
    There is no way of telling what's best
    The winds are so fickle
    "Was will sich entwicklen?"
    Asks Rumskib, who's sailing with zest.

    While I listened to Carlos St. Ana
    I was sailing an eastbound banana
    Now, we're heading South
    And the bard known as Mouth
    Is wearing his Aussie bandana.

    <b>Dingo:</b>
    T'was early in the month of Feb,
    I left to sail the VOR,
    Told my wife I'd be away,
    four weeks or maybe more,

    That's fine she said, sail well my boy,
    go fast for the Auckland shore
    Now it's looking on the cards,
    I'll sail right past her door.

    <b>Mouthansar</b>
    Dingo! That is phenomenal.
    Nothing like the doldrums to turn the poetic side of a manbrain inside out :-)

    There is a fine Aussie named Dingo
    Who is currently leading this stint. Yo!!!
    His wife is a dear.
    She's steering him clear.
    Of the beer joints to which he might else go.

    (By 'stint' I mean overall VOR so far)

    <b>Dingo:</b>
    Mouth, I now realise there's a SOL version of haiku. Poem's are limited to 200 letters.

    Nice one Mouth! :)))

    Trying making a poem with Mouthansar,
    his name uses up a whole stanza,
    but down in the south,where he's shortened to Mouth,
    he's more well known than Mario Lanza.

    <bZ>Mouthansar:</b>
    Haiku is a very different stanza.
    Here's an attempt at the noble art:

    An ocean becalmed
    Plowed by furious keels
    Rest the seas, sailor.

    LOL ... Who's Mario Lanza? :-D

    <b>Dingo:</b>
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mario_Lanza

    That is a lovely haiku Mouth!

    <b>Mouthansar:</b>
    I am so proud to be compared to Lanza. I quote from Wikipedia: "Lanza was known to be "rebellious, tough, and ambitious." :-)

    ... also known for: " addictions to overeating and alcohol" Hmm ... still spot on!

    Dingo might take the Melbourne to Hong Kong race although it does not look much like it now:

    When your Future Track looks like a bowsprit
    And your wake looks much like an armpit
    You know it'll be
    Quite a while before we
    Are racing again and top speed hit.

    There once was a skipper named Dingo
    Though not quite a drummer like Ringo
    He sails his boat fast
    And never comes last
    But right now he is dreaming of 'Bingo'

    On trying to circumnavigate Dai Island in 0.85 knots of breeze:

    Someone - got the spelling all wrong
    I realized, sailing along
    Dai Island it's called
    But that is a fault
    It is 'Die!', in their local tongue

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!
