Users who are found to promulgate FAKE NEWS on the forum in regard to this issue, intentional or otherwise, may find their access terminated. It is your responsibility to provide references to bona fide sources.
FAKE NEWS, in this regard, is that which is posited by organisations, media, etc., that is repeated on the forum, or used to support personal opinion/hypothesis posted by users - FAKE NEWS is not necessarily the personal opinion/hypothesis being posted in itself, any issues with such should be challenged respectfully.
IN ADDITION it seems that conspiracy theories are finding their way onto the forum. This is not the place for such content. Users who post it may find their access limited or permanently suspended. Please leave it where you find it.
Yup, done that. We were racing at time. We sorted it by running by the lee to cover the spinnaker so the twists could be pulled out. Not something I would want to do singlehanded, but sometimes needs must.Have you done the one where you do a wineglass.... but wrapped round the forestay?
OK, you're excused! I have sat on the bow of a small yacht on flotilla squeaking at the dolphins playing in our bow wave while my less animalistic mate steered... Magic!Freeloaders, the lot of them - riding our bow waves. Grrrr. Ha ha, no not really. It just seems compulsory to get the cliched shot of dolphins on video. I'd probably do it too, if I had the opportunity.
