Re: Sailing, safety, & size

Um I Am right now and have been for years, Actually I'm in the yard doing work for a bit but will be back at it again we only went up to 50 degrees latitude this year but will go further next year. Funny thing is all the big boats around here drop the sails when it blows over 30 we never do and the fact that you would suggest that we are unsafe based on nothing more than the length is pretty laughable. Fyi back when I sailed my tiny Flicka a boat half the size of my current boat we happily sailed in 20 plus foot seas and full blown gales on multiple occasions and never once did we fall victim to all the data your computer states. Remember Paulo if you want to be a sailor you have to go to sea.
