    I seem to remember Jean Pierre Dick sheltering in La Corunna in the last Vendee, prior to crossing the bay.....;)

    Obviously he waited for more clement conditions - withouut a keel.....;)

    After losing the keel Jean-Pierre Dick luckily could stabilise the floundering boat by filling the ballast tanks with water and continue, but a lot slower of course, and only relatively safe and manageable in downwind conditions I guess, the keel and mast walker* Alex Thomson profited from this and took Jean-Pierre's third place, I believe.

    * Alex Thomson's keel and mast walk are in post #6223 & #6224.

    A tragedy was avoided by a hair when Reef McIntosh had lost control of the jet ski which had just launched a Raimana Van Bastolear archi hollow wave on the deadly wave of Teahupoo in Tahiti.

    The jet left with the lip of the wave, grazed the head of the Tahitian surfer - who had the instinct to bow their heads - before being swallowed up in a monstrous tube.

    Numberable years ago I told my circuits lab assistant that we couldn't complete the experiment because some of our resistors had lost their magic blue smoke.

    He cracked up.

    I'm sure the joke was old long before we thought of it though.
