Status: april fool's day jokeToo close to the real thing. Yachting Monthly reports that the April Fool it inserted into its current issue ruffled a few feathers:
In our bid to insert some authentication into the prank about children competing in world sailing stunts we used the fictitious name: Ocean Youth Association. We did not foresee that by Googling this name - which according to Caroline White of the Ocean Youth Trust many people did - her own organisation and that of the Association of Sail Training Organisations came up. Both these organisations were then contacted by folks seeking clarification.
Unfortunately, they don't seem to have the April Fool itself on their site.
