I've run google translate over the SI's, set for special Punuku BS settings,

What they are saying is they want you to take the bus...

Hah,yes.

Silly me, I'd forgotten about those as an option. My life insurance policy specifically excludes them, hence I could only think of the very old school and sooo last century option of the bus.

Just get a taxi, it's what I'll be doing and you don't run the risk of some scumbag breaking into your car. Plus you can drink as much rum as you like in the delivery home as you are getting a taxi 👍🍺

Really?

 

I don't see anything like that on Metvuw, Aussie BoM long range.  We're in to the start of a small high pressure system?

 

Will keep watch all week.

 

Have to find a decent sized motor/fizz nasty boat to shoot out and watch them go by

It’s racing a pink flamingo, a gnome, a toadstool, a fence butterfly and a bird bath.....

Don't forget ... if you can't be on the water in reality, you can always race a virtual 60ft trimaran with Sailonline - still free to play with realistic/real-time winds from NOAA!!

 

Full info on Sailonline's homepage or, if you prefer, right here on crew.org in the Sailonline Forum here:

Can it not also include a vessel similar to those that the majority of us own? like Young, Ross, 1050, or something (Pogo...)? 

 

The forecast is shaping up to be a cracker, and I really wish I could be there for this.

Yes forecast looking good, starting to think I should have gone this year. Still to much work needed on other boats.
