    Default XR Pirates in Falmouth!

    https://www.falmouthpacket.co.uk/new...llion-protest/

    Arrived on my boat on Sat afternoon to find someone had been aboard on the Friday night and attached a pink Extinction Rebellion flag to my back stay. They had to get aboard to place it. Whatever the motivation, anybody boarding my boat in the middle of the night without my permission is well out of order. If I had been sleeping below they would have gone over the side!

    Agreed, they shouldn't have come aboard...but what colour flag would they have attached, if your boat was a 2,000hp Sunseeker?

    What if they knocked first?

    Would you be saying the same if they had boarded to say, refurl your flapping genoa?

    I wondered what those pink things were, but then it's Falmouth week, one night we once flew the Mylor water taxi flag on Roger Taylor's boat.

    Your boat has been chosen, and marked.

    Come the next protest, it will be YOUR boat painted pink on a trailer blocking a major city centre.

    Now I know how they source their boats.

    Assisting a stranger's boat in a sailor-like manner is one thing, boarding it uninvited in breach of all manners in order to turn it into a shonky political stunt is totally out of order.

    I'd thank you heartily for the first but throw you overboard with a kick in the crutch for the latter.

    I wonder what the consequences might be if you threw somebody overboard?

    Virtually nothing. Well, virtually nothing when compared to the consequences of doing nothing about the climate emergency.
