Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
While racing in the Northern Century Race last month with my daughter (The first father-daughter team to ever compete (yes, I'm bragging))..
I had finally broken free of Haro Strait, and was making over 9 knots OTG on the way to Hein Bank..
It was the middle of the night, and I was about 30 hours into the race.. I was very tired..
All of the sudden I saw what looked like a telephone pole pass by my lee.. maybe 6 feet away.. freaked me out
Realized that it was shadows from the moonlight on the waves..
