Jim and I have been approached by a sponsor we've never heard of, but are considering their offer. The Friends Of Obese Landlubbers have asked us to sail around the world and document everything we consume along the way. This includes all beer and wine. It's a calorie consumption-versus-endurance race, designed to inspire weight loss and toning via everyday isometric exercises, such as the ones you'd employ on a boat at sea. They are offering to equip the boat with a satellite tracker so you can follow our position. The only hitch is that we must sail backwards, e.g. stern first. This will significantly slow us down. However, we own two Dana 24s, and that means we own two pointy ends. We are looking into the possibility of hitching the boats together, stern-to-stern, so that we will have a bow after all. This would turn the boat into a double-ended schooner with a huge center cockpit and a bar at either end. We will keep you informed of our progress with the Friends Of Obese Landlubbers, whose motto is "All Progress Rarely Is Linear."
OBTW, enjoy this:
