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.

Is this a trick question? Everyone knows a rainbow forms a circular arc in the sky, opposite the sun - terminating at each end into the horizon.

Edit - Perhaps if viewed from a high-flying aircraft, the rainbow would form a complete circle - but never experienced this personally.

I can only add a near miss. Does that count?
I was sure we were going to get nailed this day, but it slid on past.
Only got a nice rain shower.

I have a video that was taken while we were out sailing during a small craft advisory.... Can't find the photos I took that day though...

Here's a link to the video... YouTube Video

I looked at the video Sailingdog, and was disappointed that nobody was wearing PFD's. If something were to happen which it can and very quickly. Would any of the crew have time to go and search for their PFD or lifejacket, one that fits them. I doubt it very much.

This is a picture that I took crossing Trinity Bay, Newfoundland, wind is about 25 gusting to 30knts.

How do you get the pictures to paste directly into the post.

Ronbye-

Normally, I would agree, but it isn't as dangerous as it looks, given that we were on a boat that is 18' wide and doesn't heel much more than 10˚.

If we had been on a monohull, I can guarantee we would have all been wearing PFDs. If I am singlehanding, I will wear a PFD and harness. If I'm out with crew that isn't qualified to do a MOB recover, I'll also be wearing PFD and harness. That wasn't the situation that day though.

I also will require PFDs and harnesses be worn by my crew and myself, if I feel the conditions warrant it.

Kernix-

28' Trimaran, with a beam of 18'... so it no one was really in much danger. The ama floats also have a bulwark on them that is almost a foot tall.
