Royal Moma Yacht Club: Boating and BBQ event a qualified success
In yachting, that is known as "the stern".
The Royal Moma Yacht Club (RMYC) held its Gilligan’s Island-themed shindig this weekend, led by Commodore Adam “Deep Six” Goodman and CFO Nick “Poopdeck” Papa. The afternoon included the camaraderie of sharing barbecued victuals followed by the competitiveness of fierce and full-on boating. While some vessels struggled in the water, it is early days yet for the RMYC, and most members — whilst enjoying a post-event beverage at the clubhouse a.k.a. the RAN Cafe Carmelo — seemed to deem the day a qualified success. “Arrr,” said one of them. More details to soon re upcoming events. For now, some photos from the afternoon.
Royal Moma? More like Royal (Food) Coma. (Ha!) Notice the always-entertaining "Under-the-Leg Steak Sandwich Trick".
iBarnacle's "All-Purpose Guide to Yachting in Beijing and Its Environs, 2012" states that having two boats mired in weeds and a third locked into a 360-degree turn is to be avoided if at all possible.
One observer described this scene as, "Two newborn suns streaking across a wet and filthy universe." Touche.
The same observer described this scene as, "The same two newborn stars streaking the other way across a wet and filthy universe." Double touche.
The shore teemed with yachting fans.
