Re: engine-less

I daysail and weekend a modified engineless 30 ft Shield one design from Lopez Island in the San Juan's. I have a bunch of info about sailing without an engine on my blog.

I have been sailing this way for about 6 years and don't row much any more. Mostly it is about having a great sailing boat with the ability to pile on the sail and figuring out how to work with the wind and tides. Great fun and a rewarding challenge. Not for everyone to be sure, but I enjoy it.

Let me know if you have any specific questions.

Cheers and good luck.
Bill
