stick to sailing

After following the fight club for sailiors thread for about a week i quickly became tired of the constant slanderous posts with no relation to the sailing world. This thread is for anyone and everyone who simpily wants to post about their recent outings and problems they may be having with their vessels, no whining crying or degrading each other, simply sailing

Since Surfesq is either lurking, defeated, or lost at sea, I will quadruple the motion.

But . . . the boat's getting hauled next week - no more current sailing reports until April '07. :-(

A good idea.
I have never had the patience to read the thread.

IMS, there isn't much to talk about sailing for the new englanders who have pulled their boats up. maybe you should post a sailing adventure if you have one, to start the thread going!

Yes, unfortunately for those of us in New England, the long cold dark of winter is upon us... and unless you're in a frostbite racing series... there isn't much in the way of sailing going on.

Most marinas and storage facilities up in New England consider the season to run from April to the end of October. If you try to haul your boat after Halloween, often, your storage options are pretty limited.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Simple day sail

I thought about sitting at the computer today and writing a long editorial post to this thread, but I went sailing with the family instead...



Columbia River near Portland, Oregon, 45 degrees, light winds, 3 hours on the water, 165 genoa, top sailing speed 2.9 knots. Major relief to be on the water again. More pics here.

I'm glad we don't all live in the Northeast...

Got through a full gail off Bermuda in early June. Two days at about 50 knots, confused sea. Gained to 40 feet or so, steady, (if confused.) Went for some rack time the second night. Nailed by super cell, ripped the bowsprit (and the Genny) clean off, and shredded the mizzen. Limped in with the bowsprit lashed across the deck to Beaufort NC. Two weeks (or a little more) later, the tall ship fest came to town. (Pepsi Americas' Sail.) Tacked the 'sprit down with all-thread, and, invited, joined the race- singlehanded. Took first overall, and Carolina class. Just about have the repairs completed and seaworthy. Leaving for points south in two weeks or so. How's that for a sailing story?
