OPINIONS, FACTS, STORIES AND WHAT’S NEW IN THE FASCINATING WORLD OF YACHTING


YACHTIE TYPES THE AMOROUS FEMALE CHARTER GUEST


Like the male version, this person is never, ever, young, fit or attractive. Yet bizarrely in some twisted reverse body dysmorphia, she thinks she resembles Beyonce. I mean come on, how can you not find her advances a turn on? A compliment even? Easy, it’s still harassment so best thing to do boys, is travel in pairs, hide, and don’t turn your back on her in case you get a ‘harmless’ spanked bottom from someone who looks like your mum’s friend… with a hangover. Don’t get conned into adding some UV protection on her wrinkly walnut tanned skin either.

NAUTICAL ETYMOLOGY... SLUSH FUND


On ships in the 18th century, slush referred to the waste fat which was left after the ship’s cook had boiled salt beef. The fat was skimmed off and stored in barrels. In the US Navy, the fat was sold and the proceeds of this sale were called a slush fund. The money was spent in buying luxuries for the crew.


now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than those you did. So throw off


the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails.

MAGNIFICENT MARINER ROBERT FITZROY


Vice-Admiral Robert FitzRoy (1805 – 1865) was an English officer of the Royal Navy and a scientist. He achieved lasting fame as the captain of HMS Beagle during Charles Darwin’s famous voyage, FitzRoy’s second expedition to Tierra del Fuego and the Southern Cone. FitzRoy was a pioneering meteorologist who made accurate daily weather predictions, which he called by a new name of his own invention: ‘forecasts’. In 1854 he established what would later be called the Met Office, and created systems to get weather information to sailors and fishermen for their safety. As Governor of New Zealand, serving from 1843 to 1845, he


tried to protect the Māori from illegal land sales claimed by British settlers. ONBOARD | SUMMER 2019 | 9


DESTINATION CRUISING The Med hasn’t appeared to be anywhere near as busy this summer due to lots of owners deciding to venture off the milk run. Reports that more yachts have stayed stateside this summer (perhaps to do with the US built boats being charged to come to the Med?), and others have gone up to the Baltic to explore seem to confirm this.


AMERICAS CUP 2021 Lots of yachts now have New Zealand in their upcoming itineraries. The Kiwis better be ready for the huge influx of spectator superyachts, crew and owners heading down under! Plus, Auckland has abandoned plans to charge a daily superyacht anchoring fee.


GOING GREEN The pursuance of going green(er) in yachting is stronger than ever right now with more and more yachts ditching single use plastics as much as possible – is it really that hard guys?


MENTAL HEALTH A hot topic in yachting as well as other industries. We see reports showing interior crew seem to suffer the most with low morale – perhaps this can explain why fewer stews than ever are staying in the industry?


INSTAGRAM INFLUENCERS They have been warned about showing respect when visiting places of historical interest. There’s been a rise in insensitive idiots taking selfies, grinning or posing provocatively at sensitive locations. Grow up and show some respect. Don’t get caught out and embarrass yourself and the yacht.


CBD PRODUCTS Are we being prudes here or what do you think? For example in the UK, the CBD market is un-regulated, so the sellers can basically lie on the packaging to curve around the technical details. Marketeers of some CMD fruit pastels, tell us our brains can have a chilled vacation, without the high…. how does that work? We recommend you get a grip and grow up!


INVESTMENT ADVICE Investing your hard earned money in a bona-fide investment product is paramount, whether it’s to save for a property or for longer term retirement plans. Predicted massive gains in investment funds backing marijuana, classic cars and fine wine? Do your homework, ask your colleagues who they deal with and invest those euros or dollars sensibly. But, pay off your debts first!
