LOL. I think that is Morty from Meatballs in the chartering ad.

Re: Old Sailing Ads

I quite like this ad - and it isn't even all that old:



Tell me if anything you see strikes you as unusual and I'll give you the story behind it ... not that Joe Public would ever notice.

(and, no, it's not a fake 'green-screen' ad - it's a real boat, under sail, on a real harbour with real people on board)

Re: Old Sailing Ads

Hey, I actually had that exact paisley shirt - it wasn't all THAT long ago. Wait....maybe it was.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

3 models who are scared to death - holding on to anything they possibly can on that "tippy boat". I like the guy to port holding up the tail of the coiled halyard...

"I got this fellas. Wait, who's driving?"

(They could have at least photoshopped in a clean bottom.)

Well spotted, Smacky - you got most of it.

FWIW, the yacht's name is "Wairiki" and the scene is Auckland harbour on a winter's day. It's blowing +25kts. All three of them are freezing and the guy to port holding the halyard is a certain shade of green having recently lost his dinner.

A keen eye might notice this yacht is fully-reefed and even with no headsails up, it's doing more than hull speed! The skipper on the tiller is leaning back out of the shot and hanging on for dear life whilst the rest of the usual crew (one smart lady) is down below.

Scared to death they should be - the chase boat was having a hard time keeping up - and yet the guy up front was still able to crack a smile and act casual on cue. Amazing.

Yeah. When the gig was lined up, no-one thought she might be showing her bum and even the advertising company didn't notice until this picture went up on billboards all over the place - by then it was too late.
