Blue Water??

In another thread, SailorTJK1 questioned what % of sailnetters actually have blue water experience. So here's a little poll for everyone to participate in.
For purposes of this poll...Blue Water will be defined as sailing as captain or crew in the open ocean with the boat more than 24 hours away from any landfall.
Should be interesting.

Check:

1. I have blue water sailing experience
2. I do not have blue water experience but hope to one day.
3. I do not have blue water experience and have no desire to.

I'm a 2!

I've been in blue water, but only as a passenger. Hope to be there again someday on our own boat.

I checked no.1 based upon cam's "open water 24 hours away from landfall" definition of bluewater. I've done this many times.

I was under the impression "blue water" meant beyond the continental shelf, or in water thousands of feet deep.

I'm stuck with green & brown water right now. You haven't lived til you've scrubbed an Ohio River dirt ring off your boat.

Hope to do the blue stuff in my retirement years.

I'm a 2, but as the old David Gates song said:

"I would sail around the world
Look for gold and dive for pearl
But I know I will never get to go"

TB...since this is an international poll and the continental shelf doesn't exist everywhere, I decided to keep the requirements minimal and just make them beyond normal coastal cruising. I suppose I could have constructed something more rigorous. Maybe we can do another one after this one is over focused on passagemaking.
No "3's" so far!!??

Trade that negative attitude in for a positive one! If you keep that Gates song as a motto, it will be a self-fulling prophecy.
