Sailing Photo Quiz - Throwback Thursday





Who won?

Why is this suddenly topical?

What did Tillerwoman have for dinner?

What was happening in the week before these photos were taken?


Awol D. Rough said...

1. Two of the Backstreet Boys.

2. Sailfish Intergalactics

3. 1999

4. Disneyworld, Orlando, Florida

5. The Melissa worm.

6. The Zika virus is really the same thing as the Melissa worm.

7. Cheese fondue.

8. You can't handle the truth!

Tillerman said...

1. Not exactly
2. Sailfish? Look a little more closely.
3. Getting warm.
4. Does this look like Disneyworld?
5. No
6. No.
7. Lucky guess?
8. Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.

Ronald McDumsfelt said...

1. Two of the tiller extensions.
2. Some Sunfish regatta.
3. During the first Clinton dynasty.
4. Some beach.
5. There's an R in the month.
6. MYCSunfish Fleet.
7. Oysters and champagne.
8. There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know.

Tillerman said...

1. Yes. That was the easiest question. My two sons.
2. Well done. Yes, "some" Sunfish regatta. I wonder which one?
3. Yes, but I need to know the year.
4. Yes, but can't you be more specific? Are there any clues in the picture? What is that way in the distance? Where is O Docker when we need him? (That's a clue!)
5. Is there? Not what I was looking for. There is a very strong link between this event and some sailing news this week. (That's a YUGE clue as Donald Trump would say.)
6. No. Somebody even more famous.
7. I am sure she would have enjoyed that.
8. The answer, dear Gary, is not in our stars, but in our blog. (Another YUGE clue.)

JP said...

The illusive O'Docker does sometimes appear. The last known sighting was after the posting of a picture of Kate Upton, so maybe further pictures could be used as a lure.

For 4. is that hinting San Fran?

For 7. I'm guessing some nice sea food?

Brian Lambert said...

Did you buy No.1 son those shades or did he choose them himself?

Tillerman said...

Brian - I don't recall when or where #1 acquired those shades but by this age I am pretty sure he would have chosen them himself.

JP - she probably didn't have seafood, because Tillerwoman actually wasn't with us at this event. This was strictly a father and sons week. And you are on the wrong track with my hint for #4. I don't think O Docker was in California in the 1990s was he?
