Like wise. Love meeting up with Sailneters. Wish we could have travel south together.


I am glad to hear the other stories out there. We can all learn from each other's experience. This is were I believe Sailnet shines and is at it finest.

There are so many seamanship lessons here I wish I was more apt at making instruction videos like Alex did back in the day. Paulo brings up a good point on when the seas get real ugly and wind blowing hard and you are running downwind why you might not be able to turn the boat into the wind. The biggest danger here is broach with breaking waves. Probably the worst position one can be in. The physic's of this would make a great discussion. Sail management, different hull forms, CLE, CLR, rudder size, etc. I even envision Mr Perry getting a few words in on this.

We did some heavy weather sailing over Thanksgiving, for those that didn't see the Youtube video over at BFS thread here is a short video of that going downwind: Moondance Downwind Sail - YouTube
The first part of the video is sideways. It corrects it self after the first minute. Still learning how to shoot video.
Thanks for the information ... I CANNOT WAIT!!! It is the antsiest I've been waiting for sailing season to start up here.

The BFS sail looked like a lot of fun.
