    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

    Another philosophical morning spent at winds between 0.5 and 1 knots somewhere in the Pacific on the way to Hong Kong.


    It's to teach us a thing about pressure
    That we're sailing low winds at our leasure
    Be the winds strong or weak
    A skipper must tweak
    His sails to the best daily measure

Current Races:

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!
