If you'd ever done one of his pub-quizzes, then you'd probably think differently!

Suppose it is only and proper to say only a bloke with a huge heart and a generous mind can take a big ribbing.


But I wonder if he would have been so quick to assit a youngest ever ROW canidate

Re: The Real MarkJ Exposed

Great stuff. Too bad about the fuel, glad you made it safe n sound tho Robert. Hopefully we will catch you and mark when we pass through in a couple of months. Currently in Martinique after a successful crossing, although not ideal weather on the crossing the 22 day passage is fading into one big blurry squally, thunderstormy, great sailing days memory...
I'll add a thanks to another CF member, Barni (Nick) in the canaries who was a wealth of good advice and weather advice when we were there as well. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet in person but hopefully one day...

Re: The Real MarkJ Exposed

Jeez. Now the guy's bloody head won't fit in the forum...

To prove he ain't perfect, I can attest that the bugger can't carry a tune in a bucket...

(Ok - Maybe he can - we were drunk and I can't remember)

He is a decent sailor, though... In photo two he's pointing out a tanker that I may have failed to see...

Thank goodness that the "exposed" is not related to this thread Naked Sailing - Truth or Wishful Thinking ?
