Carib Rum Run

Fledgling pirates on the sea
Chasing Rum and Victory
The fleets have split
The tactics hidden
Beware advice from pirates unbidden
Across Carib we plunder and pillage
And lest ye rum, there be no spillage!!

Best to ye all!
Blow ye winds in the morning,
Blow ye winds heigh-ho!
Across the Carib Blue,
Our course is sometimes true.
We seek out island run,
'tis worth a tidy sum.
But Captain bold, to foc'sle bum,
All hoist a dram or two.
Blow ye winds in the morning.
Blow ye winds heigh-ho!
Blow ye winds in the morning,
we're bound for Mexico!

On a tuesday in April we rose.
Where we'll end up nobody knows.
For doldrums or thyphoons
our fine SOL balloons
go only where the wind blows.

It makes me glad to see this thread is still alive. Sailonline became a place of sadness for me when we lost AGage. 'Tis time to go on as you do, 76Trombones. Thank you.
Thank you for checking in.

You can see that it's slowed down... I've just barely restarted, and ballooning has turned out not to be very good for that, as Aaron's brain would have been going a mile a minute this race. I've been mentally compiling a list of the things he would have found interesting / explored / solved / shared, but my strength was always the supply side of the process. We made a good team, as he had a gift for getting things *done*. Sigh... Potential.

That doesn't rhyme.


I know this doesn't rhyme either, but:-
What is the smallest man-made object with
1. The greatest number of (English) names?
2. The greatest number of different functions?
3. The greatest number of methods for making it?

If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Absolutely nobody wishes to answer my little quiz? You've already seen one of its more obscure functions!
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
It is such a little thing, after all.....
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.

Migaloo Migration 2020
For many years, SOL has followed the migrations of the Pacific gray whale along the western coast of North America from its northern feeding grounds to its southern breeding grounds off Mexico. Down under in the far opposite corner of the Pacific, Migaloo, the white fella, and his humpback whale kin, exhibit exactly the same (or diametrically opposite) migratory habits between feeding grounds in Antarctic waters and breeding grounds off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We followed Migaloo's springtime track north for the first time in 2019 and this year we repeat the experience, now in 60ft Trimarans. Only 3200 nm. If a whale can do it, so can you!

SoCal 300 2020

The SoCal 300, raced in the waters of California on the US West Coast is usually one of San Diego Yacht Club's most challenging races meaning that we have our work cut out for us to be competitive in our Santa Cruz 52s. This year, due to #COVID19 the real race won't be running which means that some of the real competition may well find their way to race against us in virtuality!
