While on the Cape Town to Auckland race, this came to mind

It’s common whenever I race
My life goes to heck trés post haste
All the wife does is roar
“Go back to your chores”
So I just hide my screen and play chaste
Thank you for share.
I liked the 'chased'.....I understand...…..
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
On seeing Bonknhoot's threat to my third place in the Newport Timed Race 2020

Brother Bonk is a jolly, old geezer
Who's determined to sail like a Ceasar
I'm beginning to think
My result may well sink
Who needs podiums with friends such as these, huh?

We’re off to see the WiX-erd
The wonderful WiX-erd of SOL
We hear that the WiX
Is a wonderful WiX
If ever a WiX there was
We just follow the yellow brick road
And we'll win as QT foretold
Because Because Because Because Becaussssse
Because you missed that big blue hole
Da da da da da da da da da
We’re off to see the WiX-erd
The wonderful WiX-erd of SOL!

Some recent rhymes...

On Bimmer's win.

Oh, Bimski, Bimling, Bimmer,
By Thor, you'll be our winner.
Not east, you said, look'd best
No, Odin, said you, said West
And you'll be home for dinner.

On FastFlo's return (and cheese and beer).

Kediss Fastflo, wederziend aangenaam
Dutch cheese is barely worth a damn
Compared to the monastic Belgian brew
That knocks you out, before the loo
Is got to.

On Dingo's driving.

Wǒ bù zhīdào zěnme xǐ, John
Hurry up, or El'll be gone
At a tighter Tee Wee Hay
As the Chinese just might say.
Gone direction rising sun.


Clipping along
The "greek blue wall song" to seduce Triton and the wx gods to bring you better winds. Tried it in Naples Triangle and ended up being parked at 0.3 kts for 5 hours. So, singer beware!

---
If we had a trireme,
we would be doing 2 knots.
If we had a trireme,
the other boats would go nuts.
(percussion)

If we had a trireme,
we wouldn't be stuck.
If we had a trireme,
we wouldn't look like a duck.
(percussion)

If we had a trireme,
we could be sipping Greek wine.
If we had a trireme,
those winds would be fine.
(percussion)

If we had a trireme,
we wouldn't count miles.
If we had a trireme,
we would be all smiles.

Lalala lalala...
La lala la.
Zorba the iconoclast
Unique routes, always fast.
So South he goes, from Christmas Isle
To sail the Bight in typical style,
N’er to BBQ, for his repast,
Does Zorba, the iconoclast.
About horthes furthest northest.

A horth is a horth of course off course
Off course, up north, oh dear, that's worse
These ditties have to rhyme you see
At least so said old Hank Hain-ey
And Mr Ed spoke too and said "Agree-gh"
Clipping along
A warning to our Old Poets Society critics.
(in the form of a 'Tipperary')

SOL's poets for posterity
Write rhymes with great sincerity,
And though their muse may seem obtuse
With purpose simply to amuse,
Mockers will be dealt with…
with great severity!

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
