If part of the problem was language, another part might have been different expectations. No clear consensus on the goal. Maybe Harry and Jane really were just going for the " oldest person to cross" pickle dish, but Jake and RD thought they were racing. That explains the spinnaker disagreement, and some of the water disagreement as well.

Definition of SAILING (Meaning of SAILING), a 7 Letter Word

2 dictionaries on one page, multiple citations of sailing (n)

That said I believe 'to sail' can be conjugated to 'sailing' as has been mentioned. Ain't english grand

Why not ... the Sydney - Hobart seems to have a motor boat division these days.

Don't most of them turn back after the Heads?.. Maybe what you're seeing are the "support vessels" for the go-fast racers.

One thing that jumped out at me...there was a 'large' video crew at the departure and at arrival as well as a lot of video taping during the voyage. In my direct experiences with cable and reality television, I have seen a consistent pattern of MANUFACTURED conflict.

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

Well, here's a question: Aside from this one, how many other cruising yachts competed in the Transpac?

This division was the "Tampax" section.
