I'll admit to being in a foul mood this morning, but what was funny or well done about that R2AK video?

First and foremost it was understated showcasing the true spirit of the event which I felt was captured well which is not something that's easy to do when you try to do it on purpose. It's also not an event for narcissistic douche bags and to call out the king of all narcissistic douche bags was humorous to me. That's why I found it well done and funny, granted I'm probably in the minority with that opinion.

Have a grumpy day.

Thanks Ding. Strangely, that made me laugh...

Personally, I think they should have ended with Kayak Guy.

The steak knife thing is still funny to me. paddling all the way thru the R2AK is almost unbelievable in this day and age.

The Sharing of a Rivalry

Refreshing read.

Spithill remains unimpressed. “I was really disappointed and frustrated, because this is a guy who has been incredibly loyal,” he said of Barker. “The guy doesn’t have an ego. He’s doing everything he can, and O.K., if a team wants to go a certain way, that’s fine. But I would have expected his team to send him out the right way.

“If he wants to join another team, no problem, but all the best, thanks for your commitment and what you ultimately did for your country. So that was really sad in my view.”


. . .“I tell you who brokered Dean’s situation: It was Larry, not me,” said Coutts, . . .

We're not going to see any racing until Sunday after the racing so if you're going to narrate please start with "Spoiler Alert". I'd like to not know the outcome before I watch.

Hmmmm....not very likely, I guess.

Light rain, light wind. Forecast is crap.
Need 6 knots to race.

Guess someone's contract isn't getting renewed.
Is their AC45 still legal after losing all that weight?

Notice he put the code 0 back on the boat for the weight for the third race.
