i have just read the latest rule book, for all of you who don't have it you must get it, it is 'vitally' important to your sailing!
If you want to get it, it is called 'Alice's Little Book Of Sailing' and it costs Â£50 which must be paid directly into her bankaccount, or by cheque, or by cash ... etc etc cash is preferable though please!
The whole book can be summed up in one rule, rule 1.000000000000
When on port tack, or on starboard tack, approaching another boat or
a coach boat or a [insert obsticle here] Alice is always right!
There is also another VERY important rule, namely rule 7.7128984696
You can protest any boat but you must call on the water if they have infringed any of the rules. However, if you decided to protest Alice, you must call 17 and 1/2 times exactly, followed by the secret word. (ie, no1 is ever able to protest Alice as they do not know the secret word)
Also, Alice can protest any person she would like, but they must have infringed her personal 'space' (within 100m behind and to the sides, and any space infront of Alice) She does not have to call as it may strain her voice and just has to tell her daddy to tell your daddy when you return to the shore.
There are many other essential rules in Alice's Little Book Of Sailing (the one and only original) so please feel free to contact the esteemed author, a Lady Alice Jane Darling, to ask for a copy of the book, free if you buy her a yacht in the Carrebian/meditterean or even just to ask for imformation that the book contains herin.
