"This would make an awesome profile picture"- the skipper
Nothing much to this sailing lark, easy as falling off a log
Do you ladies have room for a third?
Next time, remind me to go before we leave the dock. And I thought you promised you wouldn't look!
Peter prepares to recreate Alex Thomson's keel walk stunt during Sunday's fleet race.
No Peter, I don't believe you can cross the boat under the hull next time we tack.
Don't worry, Jimmy Spithill says these things can't flip over.
The phrase "Don't panic Captain Mannering" comes to mind
Sorry girls, must be those beans I ate
(been there, done that, can sell you the t-shirt)
"How's the water look, Louie?""I wanna dip my balls in it!"
"Let's do it like they do on the 49er channel"
Don't worry! It's only a small hole and if I keep my foot in it,like this, not much water will get in. And, no, the mast is not falling down, because I'm holding it up with this string in my right hand, see?
Girls if you could just lean back a bit further and brace your legs I could climb in and avoid getting my pants wet. SLAP. What did i day?
Old days of wooden boats and wooden masts.
Peter darling, can you pass me another beer please.
Maybe if you get your butt out over the rail a little more, snookems......
I'll be back in a jiffy, ladies. I'm headed below for a new drink. Can I get you anything? a wrap, perhaps? freshen your drinks? Cheerio, then.

I feel at this time I need to announce that this is an E-Scow.
Thank you Cynthia. Why do you feel compelled to announce that every frigging time we sail?
It doesn't look like an E-scow to an old guy lke me. E scow up ahead , but on this boat, no jib and not enough crew. No double rudder-- let us settle for a C scow with the old inboard rudder (yes, I know the new C's have outboard rudders).
The salesman claimed this boat could hydrofoil. Why aren't we foiling yet?
I think you're right, Sam. How did I miss all of those clues? Don't tell Skip!
One day I'm going to invent a boat that's easier to hike than this beast.

Dang! Ripped my jeans.
Shouldn't have had those burritos at lunch...
Do the RRS allow you to hold on to the shrouds like that? Protest!
While pretending to look for wind, Muffy quietly reached back, uncleated the backstay and said goodbye to her control freak skipper.
"Don't uncleat the backstay!!"
