AHOY THERE YE ERRANT KNOTTY PATED MINNOWS!!!


On 10 September at 1700utc Sailonline will start its annual race to collect barrels of rum from Carib distilleries and deliver what remains of their contents to Cancun, Mexico. The race is run close in time to Bart's Bash and this year several days before International Talk Like a Pirate Day (Sept 19).

All SYC Members are hereby invited to adopt a pirate name for this race only.

If you are a paid-up SYC Member or if you join SYC during the Carib Rum Run you may request a change your usual Sailonline boatname just in this one race to one of your piratical preference! Names are agreed on a first-come, first-served basis BUT all must be suitable and "fit to print", Sailonline is a family-friendly site so we reserve the right to disallow names we consider inappropriate.

All requests for such changes will only be actioned if posted in this thread - hollering in chat is fun, but only by posting here can you guarantee your pirate name! You may pre-request a name in advance of the race opening for practice.

PLEASE DO CHECK THE LIST BELOW before submitting a request so that you don't ask for a name already taken by someone else before you!

Please note that the change of boatname for this one race will not affect either your usual login credentials (username and password) or your SYC rankings.

Once the race opens, as always, I will be endeavouring to change boatnames as efficiently as possible!

REMINDER: you may join SYC and, once your burgee is visible, request a change of name for the race at any time up to and during the Carib Rum Run until race close!

Fun idea!
Since I will be flying under Greek pirate flag I had to do some research.
I would like to take the name "LimperrrRakis".

With a wink to one of the most famous Greek pirates: Limberakis, who was so evil that he caused half of the people in his province to flee all the way to Corsica :)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limberakis_Gerakaris

that be new info fer us - ye be mighty welcome O Limp one arrrr

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 3
Leaving a blinded cyclops behind, Odysseus is immediately blown off course again, now to Pantelleria where Aeolus gifts him a bag of wind for later. Sailing on, he next reaches Telepylos, which could be back on the African coast or present-day Favignana off north west Sicily. Our Leg 3 opts for Favignana, which turns out to be inhabited by Laestryonians who start to eat the crew. To get away, the wind bag is opened too soon and they carene on north to the land of the sorceress Circe, who turns the remaining crew into pigs for a year. But once more they get away, finally in the right direction, passing the Sirens on the coast of present-day Amalfi, to end up in The Underworld, the island Vulcano. 550 exhausting miles of mayhem!
