Crusing -Catalina or Newport?
I got lucky the 1st time. Not everyone does; I''ve known enough bad-marriage stories to understand some of the ragging.
Wives and sailing are a discussion topic unto itself. It surprises me how many times you hear about a guy that decides he needs to cruise the world. His wife doesn''t share the dream, so off he goes without her (saw a post like that a couple days back on this board somewhere).
Of course, it''s also surprising what a nightmare we can make sailing for our wives. How many couples end up fighting over on the water atrocious behavior (yelling, impatience, etc.) from the male half of the team.
For me, if I couldn''t take her along I wouldn''t want to go. Of course, if I couldn''t take her along I probably couldn''t AFFORD to go, but that''s another issue...
