Yeah that counts. As my teenage daughter would say, "epic fail."

Your RC serves coffee?!? How about beer?

Don't think they serve coffee on a formal basis. Beer, they could probably throw a can or two over I guess.
Fortunately no damage was done, except to pride.

When racing on Scotlands East Coat week regatta one year, there was a large fleet of BT Challenge boats taking part. They had a "Dick Head of the day" award at the end of the days racing for the most stupid mistake made. The prize being a baseball cap with a dick sewn onto it. It was hillarious in the bar afterwards looking out for the poor unfortunate sole who was wearing it. Bizzarley though, after a belly full of pints it was worn with pride! :-)
