Caption Contest

I know I'm going to hate myself for doing this but there is something about this lady's hiking style -- not to mention that hand behind her -- that demands I challenge my readers to a contest to devise the best caption for this photo. The pic was stolen from Sailing Anarchy and is from some girls' regatta in Catalina 37's on the left coast of these united states.

Usual prizes -- winner receives a cup-holder for his or her boat lovingly crafted from duct tape. Second prize -- two cup-holders. And so on.

(For the slower amongst you, I refer to the arm that appears to be potrucding from her read end :)

No, we don't keelhaul 'em any more when they get out of line. Spanking does the trick.

Women sailors...you don't need to feel left out any longer! Sailing Angles new women's shorts let women sailors relieve themselves from the rail.

I knew it was a mistake to hold this competition. You guys are plumbing the depths in ways I never imagined. But the silver cupholder is still up for grabs.

Ahhh, maybe one more push...

Having spent too much time sailing while she should have been in school, Jennifer never could understand physics.

"I said spinnaker. Not spanker.

Extra weight was requested....... And promptly received.

I hesitate to say this, but the first rule is "never to windward"

OG said...

They say chicks carry weight in butts, so why not use it as an advantage over the boys!

Pat said...

At least she isn't doing a "butt cleat" ... but this is the first time I've heard about "butt hikes". It's hard for me to tell, but have the lifelines been slacked and is hiking out beyond the lines kosher for this class of boat?

CHuck said...

"Thank you Ma'am, may I have another!?"

Windward boat must keep clear.

What about windward butt?

I thought it was illegal to hang from the rigging

Pat said...

I think body parts (other than feet, or upper torso if lower torso is inside a lower lifeline, or one side of a prone body) are only allowed to go "outside the fence" to "perform necessary acts of seamanship" for brief periods. So, what is the "necessary act" being performed here?
