The old don't have to worry about avoiding temptation.

IMOCA far south
I was looking for
ice for my last drink.
But SOL'ers had been there before me
so I say...

"When you're old temptation avoids you".
A man sails on the briny
On a boat exceptionally tiny
When folks laugh a lot
At his virtual yacht
He says "At least, it is mine-y"
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Rod, you're a master-limerick'er
With Due Apologies to Smo

On a sailrace to Cook Strait we go
On the latitudes better stay low
'Cross line to Finnish'
Says Smo who is gin'ish
If you finish you drink more than Smo

... sorry, Smo. This was stronger than myself.
We’re riding the Ocean of South
Enjoying the Limricks of Mouth
The winds are ablowin’
Thank God we’re not rowin’
We should be in NZ this month

(Apologies but not much rhymes with mouth!)
My Handle is a Riddle. Even to Myself

There's a sailor on SOL named Mouthansar
Who begs more of a question than answer
An Ay-rab a muslim,
An Afghan a wit-dim?
Or someone who just entertains ya

Long after I adopted my nick, I learnt it was supposed to be spelled 'Mutaza'. It's Afghan alright. Now I guess it's too late to change it and whenever I read 'Mouth' for short I think of Mick Jagger.
To Shamrock--- Mouth-South-Gout-Lout--trout-spout---in limericks it is your intentions that matter most. We will all forgive you for any accidental non-rhymes---just as long as, like Queen Victoria,---"we are amused"
If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Hmmm I thought she was not amused?
But it is very long time since I have heard anything about that so entirely possible I am making it up! ;-)

There was a cool website from Sweden
That sailors all over thought an Eden
They'd plan and they'd plot
Their tracks varied alot
The finish tho' was surprisingly even

We can't forget to include SOL itself!
I help develop the client interface for the best online ocean racing sim there is... __/)/)_/)__
Recent Research

From a study I've made in the chat
The facts of my research are that
You speak when ahead
Or going to bed
But silence prevails when it's bad

I recall as an upstart on SOL
There was really just one major goal
To chat and say 'Hi'
And see Winston reply
I would feel just so high on a roll

There was a Sol'er from Calcutta
Who sailed a fast Cutter
He was a bit of a nutter
And went too far Souther
Alas, became another Mouthanser

Sinbad Surveys Arabia 2023
Sinbad Al-SOL’er invites you to race him on seven epic voyages (5 to count), not entirely in line with those of his illustrious ancestor Al-Sail’or described in the 1001 Nights, and totally out of line with those voiced over by Brad Pitt in Sinbad - The Seven Seas, commencing with a survey of Arabia, from the island kingdom of Bahrain all the way to Aqaba, there where, in 1917, after a desperate forced march, TE Lawrence, Sherif Nasir and Auda abu Tayi routed the Ottomans. Instead of camels through the sand, though, we’ll voyage the c 3000nm across the sea on IMOCA 60’s.
