    Boat Race

    I challenged all landlubbers to beat me, and promised a valuable reward for anybody who sails faster than me. One bold landlubber accepted the challenge. All are welcome to watch and shout encouragement. We will meet on June 11th at 6pm EST at the Counselor's Hall in Britain. The race will take approximately 30 minutes.
    (I left our EM a note if he wants to be referee.)

    Perhaps this could be a betting event?

    The Boat Race Lottery

    For yer entertainment, I added another incentive: More races like this will happen in the future. The landlubber who accepts the challenge should bet a decent amount of gold or items on his victory, and I will also throw in several thousand gold coins a race.

    If I beat the landlubber, the prize goes into a pot. This way, the pot will accumulate and raise until someone manages ta outsail me! The one who wins, gets the whole pot.

    One time I took NmE out on a boat and they raced to kill me as I raced to stay alive! Luckily my buddy faction rune was in my pack to get away when I crashed the **** into land in this screenshot :*(

    Sorry guys!
    My provider disconnected me for several hours, and I was not able to contact you. It had happened before, and I'm quite angry now. Unfortunately I am bound for 24 months and there's no way I can get out of the contract early. I already tried.

    We will reschedule!

    You are paying for the full month?
