Sydney Hobart

The Sydney-Hobart race is on again. I've grown to like this race over the years. I'm not sure why. Wild Oats has dominated it but is behind Perpetual Loyal this year so far.

Wild Oats just retired from the lead. Good. I'm sick of them winning. Perpetual LOYAL is in the lead and on track for a race record.

This has been a boring race. No real challenge to Perpetual LOYAL. She's expected to beat the race record by several hours.

Perpetual LOYAL won. Yawn. At least it wasn't Wild Oats.

Maybe you could have beaten them all if you had gotten ol'Calypso ready and spicks and sponks in just the right time instead of latina-loving all day.
Then all the honour and the adrenalin rush would be jewrs now.

I haven't been sailing for over a year. I don't miss it at all. Flying to fun places and staying in comfortable hotels and apartments is the way to go.

I honestly don't even know why I sometimes care about the Sydney to Hobart race and, this year at least, I didn't really care at all anyway.

I wonder if I'm just over sailing. We'll see. Hopefully I will have another kick at that cat before I die.
