Boy.....from all the info you fella's gave me and just rummaging around the internet I think I'm more confused than before!!! Sure has been fun and educational tho! I even have a couple lines on boats!

I have a question, if I may post it here. I remember back when I sailed Rich's little boat that sailing with the wind it was pretty slow going. Only as fast as the wind was blowing if I remember correctly. Is there a way to sail diagonally with the wind that is similar to sailing diagonally into the wind, ie, faster? I don't know if I'm even wording the question correctly....

Walt, what is a "class organization"? I don't know if we have those in the Ozarks.

EE.....could you define "bareboating"? I couldn't find a reference to it.
