Re: day skipper exmination

I though of chartering given the good sailing weath we are having on the Clyde just now, but they all ask for proof of experience//certification, I've got no quals and I've never had the slightest problem chartering in Scotland on the South Coast or abroad. On the Clyde http://www.fy-charter.co.uk/...

Re: I don't beleeeeve it!

The YBW attack is starting to look a bit personal. Who's been banned recently? I did wonder if it was the Jermain Catamaran ramming guy or the sea horse guy, but I doubt it. FWIW I'd have prefered to have heard "Jermain Catamaran ramming guy's" side of the story before his name was plaste...

Re: Sanity

I really don't see the need for sticky threads. While the topic's popular it will remain at the top. It only needs to be sticky when interest drifts away - at which point it shouldn't be sticky.

Photos good. Sticky bad.

Re: Yacht rescue

decorated on the Somme God bless him for doing so. The last thing you want when you're being machine gunned at all day is to have to go back to a dreary house with out of date wallpaper. If it wasn't for Tillman's work on the Somme and Lt Col Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen's work in Yypres WW1 would have ...

Agree. I had to do a double take when I heard that. JG's fate was sad but not really something for the PM to spend brain power on.

Re: I lost my job... so I'm off sailing

As I am about to be unemployed, (recent victim of the economic downturn!) I've decided to bring forward my long term plan to get away from the rat race and go cruising. Respect, I think you've got the right idea. If I get the chop in early '09 I hope I'll have the nerve to splash out on a 4 week si...
