Sigh ... up here we seem to get very little indeed. Nothing in
the press or on TV about the Whitbread, as far as I can see....

BUT, I saw a rather nice late-night movie the other night called 
"Violets are Blue", with Sissy Spacek, Bonnie Bedelia and Kevin Kline,
in a harmless enough love triangle with some excellent sailing 
sequences, including a pretty exciting Hobie cat race and some fine
sexy scenes on a traditional day-sailing sloop (the setting is 
a New England(?) seaside community during the summer). Sissy Spacek
is portrayed as a competent sailor, with sailing as an important
element both in the plot and in the relationships between the
characters. Pleasant post-midnight fare, especially when it's
blowing 40 knots at -12C outside ...
