Hey, there's an idea. Instead of going out and getting all wind-blown and salty, we can all sit around the warm, cozy, bar wearing silly helmets and "virtually racing" each other...

Ignoring for a minute the fact that kids everywhere do that now on their parent's iPads - just how stoopid would that be?? Don't answer that..

I mean, instead of formal race protests once everyone is off the water and cooled down a bit we can have immediate punch-ups in the bar... and it's okay to ram other boats because, they're not real anyway so no damage done. Yes, what a great idea.
