John John is doing the Sydney to Hobart aboard 'Winning Appliances' so far the boats doing well.
What an odd name for a boat. Surely it'll jinx their chance for a place?
(Yes, I'm aware that the name is a sponsor arrangement, refering to a "a fourth generation Australian family owned and run kitchen and laundry specialist")
That’s the worst name for a boat ever.
If I had a ( proper ) boat it’d be called the “ Aquadisiac “.
Potentially still a very shit name , but I’ve been practicing my stink eye for when I pull into the harbour. Apparently that makes all the difference in the sailing world.
Just remembered I already have a boat . It’s called the Sea Wok.
12 feet long , made of tin , gets ridiculously hot when deployed under a tropical sun....what else would you call it ?
If i had a boat i'd call it 'Nipples to the Wind'.
Either that or 'Kevin'.
Money Pit would be a good name. Built in Dubai, Matt Allen’s Ichi Ban Carkeek 60 has been loaned to John Winning Junior and Senior, hence the renaming to the family business. “It’s a group of friends and family sailing in memory of the 1998 race,” Winning Jr says. “It’ll be the first and probably only time we’ll get the chance to do the race together.” The crew will include Tommy Spithill and Seve Jarvin whose brother and father respectively are sailing on super maxis. Since 2005 Winning Sr has loaned his motor cruiser JBW to the CYCA for use as the Radio Relay Vessel. Spithill has got a buggered elbow, I'd speculate that's why JJF got a run on the boat. The boats borderline fifth at this moment. Sitting on the rail is a long way from the WSL.
It's Ok, Wave will come...........
I’d call mine CCCCCCC
