FTBD (27)

If you don't know what the title means - I suggest you do some research.

Been fiddling around with the layout a little bit, last couple of weeks, but still am not completely happy with the results. I think I'll do some spring cleaning next. Getting rid of the side-clutter to the fixed pages in the top horizontal bar, some more. That will reduce loading time, which has gone up again, since I last checked. Suggestions are welcome.

The AC posts - still running - have generated an increase in traffic with an new LTW record of 1855 visits on a single day last Tuesday. And total visits have passed the 100.000 mark. To keep the average of one post a day before my next year-day, I'll have to post 1.623 posts/day. Well, this month it looks like that will succeed.

Please keep sending in your Sunday rules - snaps. The crew hanging outside the lifelines was a hit!

The list of ten highest referring sites to LTW:   
My thanks to you all, but particularly to "Lord T' who celebrated his fifth B'day only yesterday! Congrats with that, indeed!

Google ranks LTW as fourth with "Racing Rules of Sailing" as search, after ISAF, US Sailing and Wikipedia. I can live with that.

We've  had a couple of months winter here, with lots of ice and snow - on and off. And it doesn't look like it is going to let up anytime soon. So, no winter sailing, alas. Maybe in April.



  1. A great article indeed and a very detailed, realistic and superb analysis. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for the kind words Jos. Those are impressive traffic numbers. Just shows that there are a lot of people interested in the Rules.

    Funnily enough, several of the people who left comments on my 5th birthday post said they like what I write except when I write about the Rules! Different audience I guess.

    Keep up the good work.

  3. @ Tillerman
    Among your readers must be a fair number who do like posts about the rules. Your referral number is steadfastly in my top ten!
