Pretty damned funny, got to admit.

I just have to say it again Smack, as many have already said, the BFS sailing finds you, no need to go looking for it.

Than comes the days when you really look forward to the LFS. Sailing along at a nice 5.5knots, steady breeze blowing, beam reaching, flat water, cold soda in hand and an arm around your girl, Auto steering the boat, maybe some nice camaridere with other sailors, and a sunset on the horizon or a full moon with a brilliant cloud of starts overhead; those are the sails that are truely enjoyable.

But the BFS are the ones you never forget.
6 - 8 foot seas, beating hard, 45 degree air temp and 50 degree water temp, freezing your ass off, sailing hard, snot flying from your nose. Those are the ones you never forget. They happen, they find you. No need to look for them.
