Re: Big Freakin' Sails

Sounds like it's going to be a great adventure, smackdaddy! I'll be looking forward to hearing about the trip. Have fun :-)

Here's my BFS -- I did my first single hand sail last Saturday in a race from Berkeley to Vallejo (~20 miles) and absolutely LOVED it!! As a still-new sailor (first time skippering was less than 3 years ago), this was a huge mental bar to cross, although probably humdrum for so many others, so bear with me as I'm still beaming. It's also interesting how many people I've met who have no interest in single handed sailing, while it electrifies me to my core. Of course, I realized a few things along the way that added to this vertical learning curve that is sailing and found out how frustrating it is to have the winds die on an ebb tide while trying to go up river. Despite all that, few things compare to that experience that day on the water.
