Done properly swigging is surprisingly effective too. A very close friend of my wife's who is 94 now and lives in England
, the friend that is, not the wife, her lifelong hubbie, sadly long dead now sailed on some of the last of the clipper ships round the horn, but she still has some of the old pictures. Personally, I prefer the ones that say Quantas with a Roo on the tail for that route
