No sweat Mike. I do know that SailingDog now wears a helmet when he's posting.

BTW - where do you ski? And please don't tell me you'd rather sword fight with a helmet on.

Sweet. I was an A-Baser myself when I lived in Denver - but I would take anything I could get at this point. Have fun, dude!

I am also considering a helmet. I go out sailing by myself in a laser and if i were to get knocked out no one would even notice. Ive seen a video where the skipper of Telefonica Blue was wearing a helmet so there may be helmets made specially for sailing. I will post a reply if i find anything.

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.

Tin foil hats work. It's the people who think they can get the same results from aluminum foil who are crazy.(VBG)

The British RNLI (volunteer lifeboat association) uses helmets as do the USCG rescue boats. If you really want to do this you might check out what they wear.
