Cam,
Bravo! And I agree with Cobra that you owe no one an apology. Keep up the great work you are doing.

give him a break

Britsailor is clearly a huge liberal. Give him a break as they live in their own "special world"

The Bastards of the party

Nice one CD! You slipped it right in there!
I stayed out of the original post and voicing my opinion. Personally, I thought it would have disappeared much sooner. I live in the Bay area. One of the most diverse and (sometimes) progressive places in the world. So, I tend not to put up with bigotry, racism, slander, whatever you want to call it. I like people to be people. The uneducated usually throw the first stone. Has anyone watched "The Bastards of the Party"? (HBO) There was a comment by the narrator, a former "blood" gang member. To paraphrase, he said that its much harder to kill each other when we call each other "brother" instead of "n_____".
I am a "***", a "guinee", the word is so old, I can't even spell it! But thats the point, the conflict with my heritage is over, way over, so it doesn't offend me. But Black people in America are still in the midst of their conflict. Its still a hot topic and a volitile word, and the more you use it, the more you feed the fire. You are entitled to your opinion, freedom of speech, slander, but remember, how would you feel if you were on the other end. Respect?

Great men always have too much sail up. - Christopher Buckley

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Geez Pigslo.. I can't be sarcastic for just a minute... There are plenty of things to disagree about on a sailing forum... Mono vs. Multi, fin vs full keel... etc..

Or could it be that maybe we need to stick with issues related to Sailing.

Sorry, SD it is just so out of character for you to be sarcastic. Don't forget aft cockpit/centercockpit, sloop/ketch, blonde/brunnette. But the all time winner to start a fight..... goes to..... may I have the envelope please. "Can I take a -------- offshore?"
