A seafarer is never at the front or the back of a ship; they are at the bow or the stern. They are never on the left or right side, but rather port or starboard. They are never in their bedroom or the kitchen, but they might be in their cabin or in the galley. […]

After a leisurely long morning in Egmont we left for a long day of cruising to Gorge Harbour for the evening. It was an easy calm cruise except of course for the aptly named Grief Point where it’s almost always rough. No problem, though, our new stabilizers worked perfectly! We were welcomed into Gorge Harbour […]

North Sea Racing

Great sim sailing weather with another nice spectator turnout highlighted this weeks North Sea Bandit Regatta. The North Sea waters were well mannered as the only DNF (Did Not Finish) on the day was due to a skipper getting caught across a region corner and crashing (you can’t be in four regions at once). The […]

The Chad Writes

Admiral Tip Kaufman looked at the quote he’d etched into his bunk frame. It was old; written hundreds of years before the flooding, and even older still than the great purges; the author’s bones were no doubt dust by now. But that didn’t rob the quote of its truth, at least not by the admiral’s […]

It caught my eye because of the sailboats in the painting because I grew up around them and love looking at the old world sailboats from this time period. The forms of the sailboat are easily recognizable as three-dimensional you can see the mast sticking out […]

Seats and service on Japan Airlines domestic and international flights differ greatly. That is probably due to differences in the domestic and international markets. Internationally, Japan Airlines rises to the occasion as it battles with outstanding Asian carriers like ANA, Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific. Domestically, JAL’s goal seems to be to match low cost carriers like Jetstar and Skymark.

Look at all of their millennia of war and strife that had trained them, and bred them to this moment in history when they could completely focus their hate – They have decided that these humans and other alliances must have eradicated any other life within their territories.
