Suggested improvement to World Cup rules I understand offside, honest, Wed 23rd Jun, 5:00pm
In the 1994 carribean cup Barbados were playing Grenada. Barbados had to win by 2 goals to go through otherwise Grenada would go through. Quirky rules (matches must have an outright winner; sudden death goals counted double) meant that in the final mintues Barbados, realising that they wouldn't score to bring the result to 3-1 instead deliberately scored an own goal to force extra time and sudden death. Grenada, realising what was happening then tried to score an own goal to get the margin back to a one goal win for Barbados. So for the last five minutes of the match, each team was defending their opposition's goal, trying to prevent own goals being scored. Barbados suceeded in forcing extra time and won 4-2 during sudden death. That's even more amusing than watching people in the bar watch England play.

Surely someone in the club, past or present, can fly one of these things (Neil? ;). Could be pretty cool during bumps... (2 comments...)
Sliding riggers Mark, Thu 1st Jan, 11:48pm
For some reason Youtube recommended this video to me (I can only assume from searching for the W1 Lents 2007 video a while ago).

Out of interest is anyone able to explain why this boat has sliding riggers - does it give an advantage, and if so, why? (16 comments...)
