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 Bay 2020
Many a Sailonline race has started or finished at San Francisco's Golden Gate, but never have we raced inside The Bridge on The Bay. This 27nm sprint corrects that oversight with a fine sight-seeing tour past Alcatraz, Yerba Buena, Brooks and East Marin Island. Our rarely raced Fox 9.50 is your boat of choice. She's a nippy little thing. Enjoy!

A3 2020 Leg 8 - Darwin to Perth
In 2012 Sailonline lost one of its more remarkable racers, Aaron Gage, the creator of the Flash client and all-round awesome human being. In his memory, Tyger created a superb series of races around the island of Australia - the A3 (Agage's Around Australia) Series. This race is Leg 8 of the series - a race of 1860nm in Orange 125ft Catamarans from the laid back north to the booming mining capital and yachting centre of Perth in the south of the state of Western Australia.

Silverrudder 2020
Sailonline welcomes you to the fifth "buddy-up" with "Silverrudder - Challenge of the Sea" in the 2020 edition race around the Danish Island of Funen.
With shallow waters and a strong current this close inshore race is truly a challenge. One of three regattas around Funen each year, this race is the only one (and the biggest worldwide) for single handed racing. Will our Seascape (First) 27 be a match for the real fleet's 17 Seascape 27?
Time will tell!

It is imperative that you read AND understand these special Starting Conditions for Silverrudder 2020

Foveaux Strait TIMED Race 2020
Welcome to southern New Zealand, and welcome to this TIMED race through the South Island’s Foveaux Strait. According to a Maori legend, the strait was created by Kewa the obedient whale when traditional Maori ancestor Kiwa summoned the whale to create a waterway. It is a rough and often treacherous stretch of water. Our 98nm quadrangular course goes around some small islands in the strait. To zoom around these islands in style, we will pull our Seacart 30s out of the shed and let them fly. Enjoy!
