And now to the super yachts, in town for the next fortnight at South Quay. This is when all the cultural olympiad efforts just fly out the window and that community-bonding torch lark fades away – show us the $$$!

Just how did they get wedged in those wharfs? Well I gather it wasn’t that easy. But wow, just wow. Germany, why can’t I come and play on your boat? What entertainment do you have on there? Is is all sing-along big band every night or cardio in the casino? Discus in the disco? Tricep dips in the television room?

And welcome to Paul Allen of Microsoft and his dingy Octopus – what a shiny big bateau you have. Awesome as our American friends would say.
