Re: New Years Resolutions: Sailing-Related Goals for 2014

This year I met my goal of getting ASA certified and chartering in BVI's (I'm here now). Next goal is to get boat by April and put it in water.

Re: New Years Resolutions: Sailing-Related Goals for 2014

Hmmm....good idea. Let's see, my goals for the new year are going to be:

1) Get "Wind Angel" off the hard and back in the water after her 7 year, PO imposed, drying out.

2) Get the storage locker empty so that I can afford to slip her-hence, less trailering, more sailoring.

3) Get some major rebuilds done on her-- bright work, mechanical rebuilds, buffing and polishing, bottom coating, and wood work,--especially that ugly delapidated two piece, non-marine plywood, piano hinged peeling rusted old companionway hatch!! It just kills me to look at it! Come to think of it, if I jsut get that damn hatch replaced with drop boards, I may be able to live patiently unti the other repairs are made.

Complete ASA 104 and then feel comfortable enough to charter a boat this summer and sail to Catalina...

Get rid of the house and associated junk then move on to the boat permanently......

Re: New Years Resolutions: Sailing-Related Goals for 2014

1) race at least two national/international regattas.
2) learn to splice 50lbs dyneema (seriously any hints I have been working on this for months)
3) more days under sail
4) more nights onboard
5) wife and I doing more night sails, less racing.

Re: New Years Resolutions: Sailing-Related Goals for 2014

1) rig boat for more convenient single-handing
2) crew on racing boats to gain sail-trim skills
3) crew on boat in Greek Islands with my wife (to help celebrate our 30th anniversary - already booked )
4) single-hand a one-shot crossing of Georgian Bay - from Hope to Killarney (approx. 22 hours)
4) help my wife gain confidence in helming - she did most of it last year as a result of a shoulder injury and was taking the boat out of the marina by the end of the season. This year she says she wants to become confident in docking.
5) sail, sail, sail.....

Re: New Years Resolutions: Sailing-Related Goals for 2014

Get a boat. I'm moving up to the 80's this time. I hope I'm as impressed with the build quality of an 80's boat as I was with the 70's boat.

80 feet huh, wow, that's a big boat



My first little boat is sitting out next the garage under a tarp right now, I've never even sailed it.

My 2014 goal is sail it as much as I've been imagining sailing it! It needs some changes to the rigging to make it easier to single-hand, but I've decided that I should get it on the water and sail it for a bit before I make any big decisions about how to rig it.
