I'm finally registered...

Postby DaveS » Sat Dec 17, 2005 1:35 am

I eventually discovered the problem. Just because I was registered for blogging didn't mean that would do as registration for the forums. :? It took me a while to spot this - I suppose the reference to "another server" should really have been a hint.

Blogging proceeds slowly: I'm now only 5 years behind, but getting there...

I've enjoyed all your blog entries so far. Excellent news therefore that there's 5 years' worth still to come. Can't wait to hear your take on the Chentlemens' Cruise!

Aye, the Chentleman's cruise... I'm postponing thinking about that till I get there, if you see what I mean.

Will Avilion be sailing in the 2006 event?

And to you!

It's starting to look as if boat numbers may be up on last year even if Fairwinds isn't ready. Glad to hear Avilion will be in the fleet again although she may struggle with the stiffer competition this year! :wink:

Ah but improvements are on the way!

The new mainsail is due to arrive in a fortnight and, depending on the weather, I'm hoping to fit the new underwater secret weapon this weekend. :D

Can we stop all this rude talk please and might I respectfully point out that you will all remain in line astern until such time as you are commanded to go in somwhere that looks a bit tricky first.

Actually - the line astern bit will be easy for you given Claymore's speed advantage demonstrated so convincingly last year between Duart and Loch Aline.

I suppose if you repeat a piece of wishful thinking often enough it becomes a kind of actuality. I'm currently reading The Strange Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst. Some interesting parallels..

If I might make so bold, that was a little beneath the papal cassock if you don't mind me saying so.

With or without the :lol: or even a :D - I still think that the tone of your missive was cutting and I find myself agreeing with the policies of King Henry VIII in respect of your Kirk.

You think I am interfering in your sex life and are planning to dissolve some monasteries?
