Stu Johnstone goes for another boat ride with Dr. Laura, and lives to tell the tale… The forecast for this year’s Santa Barbara to King Harbor 80nm race was a bit challenging, if not forbidding, for the 93 entries in this year’s race.  In fact, the weather forecast created a somewhat gloomy outlook on what [...]

The Biz Hey nice work, Garmin. Of course the big business boot-lickers on the right will fellate anything that they do, but this is just such a blatant tax rip off.

Pardon this unreal walk down video-memory lane. Those of us old enough to remember will find it amazing. Those of you who aren’t will also find it amazing, but probably not for the same reasons as the old bastards!  Jump in the thread here! Props to Mike Jones for the title inspiration.

After the ass-kissing statement of support released last week by the ‘Euro 4′ AC35 challenger heads (Ainslie, Sirena, Percy, Cammas), we’re unsurprised to learn that, according to AC authority and AP writer Bernie Wilson, Russell Coutts specifically told ETNZ to stay home from a major, confidential Challenger/Defender summit meeting later this week in London.
