It has been suggested that whilst the non competitive raggies are not racing back from Neutronic Creek the equally uninterested in competing Mobos should partake of a little close quarters manoevering to illustrate the competence of their helms.
To balance between the boat sizes and speeds it has been suggested that they should try to complete the maximum number of 360 degree passes around sail boats competing in the Grudge.....clearly the faster and closer you travel the more circuits you will score......../forums/images/icons/smile.gif In true raggie racing style any contact with the yacht being circled will invalidate the circuit.

I wouldn't rule out no contact. Slapping the side of a race boat with your hand while maintaining a speed of not less than 25knts should gain extra points!

Hm, In true Grudge spirit i think I will perform reverse 360's to unwind the mobos, and with another few turns effectively sort-of win the mobo comp as well.

OK! Can I practice on you a few times, before I take on the race boats?
