I would have thought last place would be Rear Admiral!
It is a lifelong ambition... yes...
I like to talk a lot... sometimes I even make sense, mostly not...
So this is life... I bring two new fellows to SOL and all my SOL friends have to tell them about me is my Scow title...

:)
In future when you address me you need to stand at attention... neatly and a salute will be required as when addressing any officer of a fleet... ;-)

What-what-what??? A flee(t)ing 'ossifer' with an angry bar-maid chasing him..? With what is it that you wish to be saluted? An upraised finger...?

Or perhaps worse?....two upraised fingers?

If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Hehe! I guess a thumb would be mostly appreciated ! :-)
On WW's request, after checking my references, "Commander" has been added between Lieutenant and Captain.

For some reason, this rating had been swept under the carpet...

Corrected ! :-)
Not wishing to complicate matters needlessly, I take pen in hand to communicate with Your Lordship the apparent lack of a most important rank in the Navel (the spelling is deliberate) Hierarchy, one that forms the boundary between the "Un-promotable" and the "future leaders of our maritime endeavors", namely that of "LIEUTENANT-COMMANDER". It is a rank that provides for the smooth transition from lowly, and unwashed, Lieutenant to the exalted rank of Commander-"Of whom great things are expected".
I beg to remain, Sir, your most obedient servant,
Landsman--late Sub-Lieutenant, of Her Majesty's Royal Canadian Navy (Reserve)--Rod.

Rod, as I checked my reference yesterday and as I wished to stick (more or less) to the noapoleonic wars ratings, i can tell you for sure that there was no Lieutnant-Commander at that time.

But, as we already added Rear Admiral (after Scots) because the idea was good. And because I added Vice admiral because one must be vicious to reach that rate.... why not add Lieutnant-Commander because you ask ? Your reasons for asking this rating being very... reasonable...

Lieutnant-Commander added !
Rules 6 and 7 added too. :-)

Lisbon to Cape Town 2020
Our third OCC race in Q1 is also our first race of a special 4-race RTW series. Given that this leg 1 is taking us on a more than 5000nm passage from Lisbon to Cape Town, the betting has to be that the subsequent legs will be into the wind. Hopefully not in replicas of Ellen McArthurs Orange catamaran then!
