Don't tell me the Anzacs subscribe to that wrong side of the road nonsense TOO! I thought it was only the Brits.

I there is ONE rule about navigation that should be standardized worldwide, that's it.

I had to calculate, the wind is behind me, the tiller turn the opposite to what I'm used to, if the bow goes that way the stern goes the other, but wait it's backwards and backwards if its....BANG!! Jybed. Oops... In my defense I blame the tall cup of something REALLY strong that I had been recently handed for my slowness in figuring out the problem.

Wish I had know the quote above beforehand!
