Jazz on the first lag, (nice and quiet so you can hear the horns and focus on sails), Something clasic rock on the second lag to get the boat goin',,then tropical Bob Marley on the rest of the voyage(race), followed by silence for an hour or so to settle the boat down a bit,,,,,yaaaaa sailin!!!!!!!!!!!

When sailing in the fog I sometimes play an Enya tape It somehow lends a mystical to the mist.Besides it probably isn't bothering other boaters.

Mood and situation determine whether I play music, and if I do, what kind. Sometimes it can be a distraction, sometimes a complement. The only "rule" I have about it is whether it makes my day more enjoyable. And, there is no Buffett on my boat, not by design, just worked out that way.

I got the name for my boat from a song:

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

Eileen Quinn

Anything by Eileen Quinn. She is the true cruisers' poet. Who else could write songs about "the anchoring dance," SSB addiction, and "the 45 knot wind blues". www.eileenquinn.com. And no, not connected, just a fan
