re sailing

You are correct sailing itself is doable with a little caution, common sense,a nice breezy day, there is nothing better. Like everything , however there is a catch, when the furling genoa is stuck up, in comes a blow,lose an engine in the east river, or a tricky inlet, get suprised by big quick weather, here is where it gets really fun. Most of these situations you have done in calmer times so try to stay cool, and follow your instincts. It can be very challenging, and rewarding I think thats why we love it so much. Happy,safe sailing....Red
