"Crew" for Laser MWW

Thread starter #1
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

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.......
