This would appear to be our first lakesailor although the rules are a bit complex for me.

I do believe the fat controller has indeed LakeSailored you.

I of course not only did not spot your initial observation, I also failed to act on it.

Interesting. I would have said it was you who lakesailored me with the lakesailoring being the act of thanking the second reply. Perhaps we should ask the man himself?

I forgot the rules.

I don't think Lakey has ever come to play over here.

Looks like we're both right, at least partially, according to these extracts from The Rules.

Perhaps less might be more in some cases?


Do you have a picture with at least ONE person smiling? That lot look REALLY unhappy & scared - and it's almost flat calm - there aren't even any sails up! Probably a bit cold, but what the heck, that's a fairly good summer's day on the west Coast innit?

Well thanks for a constructive comment . . .

Silkie already commented on this particular picture and as a result it is no longer in the Gallery, so I am not entirely sure why you felt the need to comment on it.

I can assure you that all these people are in fact having fun - it is just a lousy photograph, which is why it is no longer visible anywhere other than in this post. Why you felt the need to reproduce it a second time is a mystery.

I find your assertion that all those people are having fun both comforting and hard to believe..
