Re: A mistress?

Nothing else for it. I'm sorry to inform you that your wife will have to go. I'm sure you've had a lovely run so far, but some things are just unavoidable. I think it best that this was discovered...

Re: Americas cup triple touch penalty to Kiwi's

My take (and only my limited understanding of these things) is that Oracle managed to overlap Emirates and were to leeward while both were on the same tack making Emirates the give way vessel. WHen...

Re: Safety Notice To Mariners

Good post. A few years ago we had a young Lt. at Hurlburt Field drown on Father's Day while paddling his new kayak while wearing a back pack. Tragic to say the least.
