Rules:
1)   Pictures should be funny and sailing related.
2)   The person who posts the first picture picks a winner after a sutable interval.
3)   The winner puts the next picture up and becomes the next judge.
4)   Repeat

Conduct: Please keep all comments and pictures clean, this is a family site. Innuendo is OK but rude or bullying is not.

If the picture is cherub related and the comments particularly funny, please post a copy of the picture and summary of the comments on the news page of the main site.

I know to finish it's the first part of the boat across the line, but this is an expensive way to win races!

Even with the proposed rig improvements it has proven impossible to get an RS200 over 15 knots.

One got out at Weston and Tim came over to me and said,

"That RS200 was flying! It looked like a Cherub!".

Any way, it's a 400 Roland  ;). Do you think a couple of fatties like that could sail a 200?!

What do you mean when you said "I'll pay for any damage" If I can borrow the boat for this weekend.
