A Picture a Day - We're sinking 1

This photo reminded me of the German coastguard joke:

Merlin Rocket: 'We're sinking! We're sinking!'

German Coastguard: 'Vhat iz it you are zinking about?'

(Don't worry - I won't be giving up the day job just yet...)

A Picture a Day...

Sadly too few red sails on the water anywhere these days - the great Mirror Dinghy a design competition classic from the pages of the Mirror newspaper.

A Picture a Day - 1986 to 2016

1986 - I was sailing on a Wednesday afternoon in my games lesson from Five Ways School and the Birmingham Mail took this photo to promote sailing as an activity for the forthcoming bank holiday. Track forward 30 years and I still haven't mastered this very simple boat, but the hiking stance and sail controls have improved somewhat!

How to watch the VR Racing.

If you are not up to racing yourself then you can watch the fun on VR Inshore. The steps are listed above. The only tricky bit is finding the race you want when there are lots of custom ones taking place. The bartley races will always be x/20 where x is the number of people that joined.

There are 3 races each session so you need to select the custom race you want to watch each time. Race 1 opens 5 mins before the start time in the calendar. Then the subsequent ones are roughly 10 mins after the previous one (I usually wait until I have the same number of competitors as the previous race logged on).

So if you are not rigged in time for the 11.00 today then why not log on and watch?
