ARCAN Posted January 1, 2008 Report Share Posted January 1, 2008 Hi all , Just an interesting observation in regard to an article in todays Herald Sun ( dads copy ). Point one is : The article was designed to showcase sailing to the general public especially the Sail Melbourne event going on down here in Victoria . So what is the main picture in the article of to draw Joe publics eye ? Bundy and Ashby of course in full flight on a mighty Tornado !! Wonder if taking the Multihull class out of the olympics was a good move ???? Tornado will be the only thing moving in Quindao . Point 2 : Our sport really is misunderstood by media and public alike . Here are word for word " TERMS FOR LANDLUBBERS " section for the article to help explain some of the sailing Jargon the public may encounter down at the bay while attending any of the events . " MAIN : The lowest square sail on the mainmast" "JIB: A triangular foresail in front of the foremast" you have to wonder if these guys have internet dont you ???? All the best , ANT [This message has been edited by ARCAN (edited 01 January 2008).] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
