    This thread is running on the Laser e-mail list, thought some of you guys might be interested:

    Do the ILCA rules say anything about sea lions?
    Check out the pictures from the final day of racing at the MWW at
    http://calyachtclub.com/photofolio/index.cfm?function=viewall&cid=44
    In particular picture #56 (she is actually racing with that thing on her
    boat?!?).

    Ok, who has the story??


    Answer coming back from Scott Fox at The Boathouse:

    I was a witness to this most bizarre event. On the way out to the course the
    baby seal swam up to one Radial and jumped on board, he (the kids named him
    BoBo) jumped from one boat to another a couple of times (see the first few
    picutures in the series) as they sailed next to each other. He stayed put on one
    boat for a while through a couple of roll tacks and jibes until the mainsheet
    caught him off guard and he swam off to find a more acceptable ride. He then
    jumped up on board with the lady shown in picture 56 and sailed not one, not two
    but three races with her. It was the most bizzare sight ever. He actually
    looked like he moved to the weather side on tacks and moved forward upwind and aft
    downwind. At one point I swear I saw him reading the telltales...We are
    talking about 3 hours of sailing time.......

    Wouldn't it be great if we could figure out how to merge the Laser e-mail list with this forum?

    To get the details on the sea lion (there is a difference between a seal and a sea lion but I couldn't tell you what it is) check out the laser e-mail list archives, specifically: http://cerebus.winsite.com/laser/archives/2001/msg07287.html
