Re: Clothing optional sailing
On our boat, crew can wear, or not wear whatever they like - except for proper shoes. We insist on protecting the feet/toes, and providing traction, etc. Might have to re-evalaute this policy vis-a-vis scrotum protection.
Two years ago, one of the regular crew brought his girlfriend onto the boat for the first time for a weekend sail. First words out of her mouth to me were, "I understand that nudity is permitted on board. I want you to know that I'm not cool with that." My response was nudity was not only permitted, it was encouraged and that I didn't really care if she was cool with it or not.
That was in the morning when the six or seven of us cast off. By 2 PM that afternoon, she was the first one naked and she stayed that way until we got back to the dock the following evening.
