today’s tunes: new order – leave me alone

On a thousand islands in the sea
I see a thousand people just like me
A hundred unions in the snow
I watch them walking, falling in a row

this is the powerful final track from New Order’s 2nd album “Power, Corruption & Lies” released in 1983.

sunfish worlds 2019: bonaire – promo video

ok, I’m sold. somebody book me a ticket.  I’ll just go and watch the racing and enjoy a week or two on the beach.

I don’t even know the racing rules of sailing, but the small island of Bonaire looks amazing.

normally, you have to qualify to race in a Worlds event, but they have opened the registration to any Sunfish Class member:

An Amendment 2 to the NoR has just been posted accelerating the date for open registrations from August 1 to July 15. That means that starting on July 16 anyone interested in being part of this epic regatta in Bonaire can register. We will cap the fleet at 72 boats and there are currently 57 entries.

the official notice of race can be found here (NOR, .pdf file).  additional information can be found at the Sunfish Worlds website.

the 2011 Sunfish Worlds were held on the nearby island of Curacao – which also looks amazing.  I’m sure Bonaire will be similar.
