Following on from the WAFI story……

Allatsea suddenly realised that some of you folks out there in blogblog land might not know what a WAFI is.

The following was snipped form ‘Urban Dictionary’, it relates to the earlier story.

Quote

“Stands for Wind Assisted Fucking Idiot.These people are ignorant arseholes (usually middle or upper class) who go sailing for ‘pleasure’ but don’t know the first thing about safely controlling a vessel on the sea. They cost the taxpayer thousands of pounds in unnecessary rescues due to their completely non-existent respect for nature. They are despised by fishermen especially.
I see that Roland Wilson who’s yacht hit the oil tanker has been fined £100,000, what a complete WAFI!”
End of quote
So there you have it.
Just one little comment from allatsea wrt to the remark that WAFIs are ‘despised especially by fisherman’. Erm, people that live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones: fisherman are despised by EVERYONE. So they say :o)

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
