MV Pasha Bulker got stranded on Australia’s Newcastle coast in 2007. The crew was rescued, but the boat was stuck for 25 days. It was finally refloated and then repaired and renamed the MV Drake. Newcastle is named after Newcastle on Tyne in England, the latter being famous for its beer.

So CSCCAA is taking a rather curious stance on transgender swimmer Lia Thomas.
